When did you join RCM-SAR? What got you involved with the organization?

What’s your most memorable moment as a crew member?

My most memorable moment as a crew member was finding out that an individual who had been in the water off the dog beach at Vanier Park survived. RCM-SAR saved someone’s life that night. Enough said.

My favourite aspect of volunteering with RCM-SAR is training with the new recruits and new crew.

Is there anything you wish people knew about RCM-SAR as an organization?
