Myth 5: SAR Teams are well funded
In British Columbia, SAR teams are reimbursed for expenses incurred during a task. They also receive a limited amount of funding for training. Other funds come from donations, sponsorship, and grants.
The fact is that SAR teams rely on support from the public and corporations. Most SAR teams in BC and in Canada are registered charities. You can support the good work of Coquitlam SAR and help us save lives by donating online.
