Fernie SAR’s inception dates back to the early 70’s when several individuals formed a loosely organized group. In 1993 the group was reorganised to become an official society. Since that time it has responded to hundreds of incidents and the group has added various technical rescue disciplines to its capabilities.

Who We Are

Our members are drawn from all walks of life with a diverse group of volunteers. All members invest countless hours away from family, friends and work to train for and provide critical life saving services to those in need. Our members train all year round in rescue techniques and emergency first aid in order to be as capable as possible when called out. Many calls happen in inclement weather, in the middle of the night or during vacations, and members need to be able to respond rapidly to emergencies.
