North Shore Rescue (NSR) is searching for new recruits to join their team.
The search and rescue group is looking to fill positions on their volunteer squad as several older members are planning to retire.
So if you’re a wilderness enthusiast, this could be a job for you. But there are some specific criteria you need to fulfil.
Here are just a few of the requirements listed on the NSR website:
The two-year training program also requires recruits to dedicate at least 300 hours a year to learning the ropes of search and rescue.
NSR gets 80 to 90 calls per year, which averages out to almost two per week. The team covers all of North Shore’s mountains and canyons. They also assist with rescue operations in other parts o BC and in the US.
If you are interested in joining NSR, the application deadline closes tonight.
