Search and Rescue Services for Regional Police Forces and National Parks

Tri-County GSAR provides search and rescue services to the police forces in our area of operations. The police forces that activate the team are:

  • Heritage Protection in Fundy and Kouchibouguac National Parks;
  • RCMP Districts of Richibucto, Riverview, Shediac, and Codiac;
  • Municipal Police force in Sackville.

Locate, Access, Stabilize and Transport

Our mandate is to locate, access, stabilize, and transport lost, missing, or injured persons within our area of operation.

Tri-County also responds to mutual aid requests from GSAR groups in other parts of New Brunswick and, upon request, from other provinces/states.

Evidence Searches

Tri-County provides evidence search services to police forces within our area.  This most often involves closed grid searches in rural and wilderness areas when the police force cannot turn up evidence required for their investigations.

Auxiliary Services for Disaster Response

Because of our training, management structure, and communication capabilities, Tri-County also provides disaster response and special event services to various organizations within our communities and outside the province, such as the 1998 disaster recovery for Swiss Air Flight 111 in Nova Scotia.

Preventative Search and Rescue

The best searches are those that never happen because someone knows how to avoid getting lost in the first place.  Tri-County is accredited to provide preventative search and rescue training to the community, primarily through the RCMP-sponsored Hug-A-Tree and Survive, part of the national AdventureSmart Program.  The Hug-A-Tree and Survive educational program for children in Kindergarten to Grade 6 has been delivered to over 4,000 children in our tri-county area over the past three years.
