Support Us

Coquitlam Search and Rescue is a registered charitable society. We rely on the support of our community to provide search and rescue services to the Province of British Columbia.

Our team secures funding for training, gear acquisition, upgrades, replacement, and maintenance through grants and donations. Rescue equipment is generally expensive and subject to severe wear and tear

We welcome contributions from the community, both individuals and corporations.

The Coquitlam Search and Rescue Endowment Fund was initiated in 2003 and is managed by the Coquitlam Foundation. The intent of this fund is to provide a stable long-term financial base for future equipment and training needs. Contributions to this fund can be made via the Coquitlam Foundation’s page for this fund

We are continually replacing or upgrading equipment and improving our team’s training standards. If you or your organization can help, please contact us directly if you can support us in this way.


Search and Rescue Teams in the Lower Mainland DO NOT solicit for funds over the telephone. If you get a phone call asking for a donation, it is not from an active SAR Group in the Greater Vancouver Area (Pemberton to Hope). If you want to make a donation to the SAR Group in your area, please contact them directly.
