SAR Alberta is please to unveil our new public awareness program “Distance-to-Assistance.

The purpose of this program is to highlight the need for awareness and planning when recreating and travelling in the backcountry, with emphasis on the length and time it may take for help to arrive.

 The  video created by Fireweed Creative Inc. with support from Sundre Search and Rescue is the first of a planned series of  videos that will present key messages from the  Distance-to-Assistance program.
