Search & Rescue
When an individual is lost, police can call on us. Our organization is trained and equipped to deploy our members along with the necessary resources to manage search incidents and sustain search operations for multiple days if needed.
Prevention & Education
By delivering services like Project Lifesaver and AdventureSmart programs like Hug A Tree, which focus on the needs of those most at risk for wandering, we hope to reduce the frequency and severity of searches.
Our team assists with public events including traffic marshalling for marathons and Harvest Jazz and Blues, and tending road closure barricades during flood season.
As a charitable volunteer organization, YSSR relies on the generous support of those in our community, and hosts a variety of fundraising events, including our annual pancake breakfast.
The Fredericton Police Force has enlisted the assistance and expertise of the York Sunbury GSAR team on several occasions over the years on high profile investigations and/or exigent public safety concerns. At all times, they have provided a timely, dedicated, professional and highly effective investigative resource to the FPF and the citizens of Fredericton and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.R.S.
