Our Rope Team is a group of dedicated members who have received extra training in high angle (and low angle) cliff rescue. This specialized team responds when the incident involves a cliff rescue or searching in high angle and high risk environments.
Our response area has many popular climbing areas, and additionally there are more people pushing the envelope in other outdoor pursuits. River kayaking and canyoning is becoming more and more popular – and as a result there are more and more people getting into trouble in high risk environments – often requiring the expertize of our Rope Team.
Our Rope team is trained and certified by the Justice Institute of BC, which in addition to housing the Province’s Police, Fire and Paramedic Academies, also trains and provides certification for land based search and rescue.
