The Search and Rescue Society of British Columbia (SARBC) is the BC Provincial Training Agency for Project Lifesaver Electronic Search Specialist training and the Western Canada Air Training Center for Project Lifesaver Electronic Air Search Specialist training. As Provincial Coordinators we:
- Promote the formation of local Project Lifesaver chapters within the province by providing support in the form of guidance, educational materials and training.
- Promote standardization of Project Lifesavers Chapters within the provincial umbrella by preparing and communicating operating procedures, programs, templates and software in conjunction with Project Lifesaver International.
Training for a new agency includes two days of on-site instruction for up to 7 people in your agency, provided by the Provincial Training Agency. Also provided is one-day training for up to 7 members to be trained as instructors for your group. Each new agency will also receive training on Alzheimers and Autism, as well as other disorders, to help when responding to a missing client.
