Fernie Search and Rescue
Fernie Search and Rescue is in Fernie, British Columbia.
Big thanks to Black Diamond for the donation of masks. This pandemic is here for a while and we all need to do our part both when we are responding and when we aren’t. Physical distancing is best but wear a mask when you can’t.

Earlier this afternoon, Fernie SAR was called out to respond to an injured hiker close to the summit of the Goldilocks trail. Three Fernie SAR CDFL techs responded and were able to locate, package and transport the injured hiker back to Fernie where she was transferred to BC Ambulance.

This morning Fernie SAR was tasked to search for 4 missing people travelling to Sandy Shores RV Park. Their family searched yesterday into the early hours of this morning. Once mobilized, Fernie SAR, along with Cranbrook SAR and CASARA headed into the south country. Luckily by late morning the missing people were able to get to high ground and get cell service. They reported a mechanical issue, but otherwise OK.

It has been a busy July for FSAR. This was our 6th call in July. BCSARA groups across the province have been extremely busy this summer. Well above average. We would like to remind everyone that response times are longer these days due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fernie SAR was tasked today for two rescues at the same time. One involved 4 rafters who fell out of their raft near Morrissey. They were located and returned to their vehicles safely.

The second involved a hiker with a broken ankle near the Ammonite. Fernie SAR CDFL Technicians executed a longline rescue to extricate the man and transferred him to BCAS.

We are seeing a lot more recreational traffic in our area as travel increases. Simultaneous rescues stretch our resources significantly, and we would encourage people to play safe; the ongoing pandemic continues to slow our response times and increase our risk.
