Mission Search & Rescue and Central Fraser Valley SAR held a joint practice at Lost Creek, near Mission. The teams practice rope and swiftwater skills together. Search and rescue teams in BC practice often to ensure their skills are sharp when tasked for an emergency. Many of the calls in BC do result in mutual-aid, meaning teams are often called upon to help their SAR neighbours. Sometimes this is because the task is very large, or it could be due to availability of resources. It’s very beneficial for the teams to practice together, sharing knowledge, and building teamwork. Thanks to @CFVSAR for asking us to participate.
