Chilliwack Search & Rescue volunteers are committed individuals who are available at a moment’s notice to come to someone’s aid in potentially hazardous terrain and situations. They continuously train, improving and advancing their skills.

Between 80 and 90 times a year, they are called out to search for lost persons or to rescue those who are injured or trapped and cannot help themselves.

Being a member of Chilliwack Search & Rescue requires that you pass a recruitment training program, attend weekly training sessions, be available to respond to emergencies and annually devote over 300 volunteer hours.

Our team recruits Members-In-Training every two years and our next intake is happening now!

To learn more about the team, what we do and what we’re looking for in potential candidates (skills, experience, availability etc.), please attend our Info Session January 25, 2020, at City Hall (8550 Young Road, Chilliwack).

Doors open at 10:30 am and the Info Session will run from 11 am to 12 pm. Come and meet a few of our team members, see some of the equipment we use, ask your questions and find out if this might be a fit for you!

Applications will be made available here immediately following the Info Session.


The deadline for applications is 11:59pm Sunday February 2, 2020. Thank you!
