Hiawatha

Peter Floyd Sabattis, 59, was last seen on Tuesday, May 16, at around 8:30 p.m., near the St. John River.  Members of Tri-County GSAR responded to a call for mutual assistance from the York-Sunbury GSAR team.  Eleven members responded and assisted all day and into the evening on Friday, May 19.  After exhausting all possible efforts, the search was scaled down and ground crews were sent home.  On Sunday May 22, the subject was located in the Saint John River by a local resident.  Many thanks to those who responded to this call for assistance.

Winter Training Day 0217

During our annual day long winter fire and shelter making practice,TCGSAR Member Norm Deschamps gets the fire going while Team president, Craig Winsor and Sarah Bunnett offer moral support...;-)  Hypothermia is a concern all year round and especially so during the winter months, all team members are trained in how best to keep the subject warm while waiting for transport.

Members of Tri-County spent several days in the Acadian peninsula doing door to door wellness checks on residences in the affected area of wide spread power outages.  Over 80 SAR members participated, representing 9 teams from across the province.  Our hearts go out to those who are suffering with the extended power outage with little to no heat or running water.
