Yesterday afternoon Coquitlam SAR was activated by BCEHS (BC Ambulance) for two hikers, one with a lower limb injury, on Burke Mountain.
Coquitlam SAR responded to a call for a hiker on the Diez Vistas trail near Buntzen Lake who was experiencing an allergic reaction from a stung from a wasp or hornet sting
Coquitlam SAR recovered two kayaks from the Coquitlam River.
With two responses this weekend we’d like to remind people to enjoy spring but remember to treat the backcountry like it’s still winter!
We’d like to highlight the actions of our missing hiker on this search – when lost he found shelter, weathered the storm, and found his way out on his own.
