About this Event

On January 21, 2018, Brett Lambert, son of Jody and Cheryl Lambert, was snowmobiling in the Okanagan back country when he got separated from his group. After missing with no contact for 2 hours Vernon Search and Rescue were mobilized through the instruction of the local 911 dispatcher.

About Vernon Search And Rescue

Vernon Search & Rescue Group Society (“VSAR”) is a volunteer, non-profit charitable Society, which has provided Search and Rescue services to the North Okanagan, a region in B.C.’s interior, since 1960.

VSAR currently has approximately 65 volunteer members that are on call 24 hours a day. We are paged via an automated telephone system upon notification from one of our requesting agencies. VSAR is kept busy with an average of over 80 tasks annually, equivalent to an average of some 6,900 man-hours annually, excluding training or administration.

A task is generally initiated by these requesting agencies:

  • RCMP
  • B.C. Ambulance Service
  • The Coroner’s Office
  • The B.C. Forest Service
  • The Office of the Fire Commissioner
  • Local government Emergency Operations Centres

These tasks take various forms, such as a search for lost or missing persons, rescue operations, evidence searches and body recoveries, and emergency evacuations. In the majority of cases, team members respond to the operations centre at the Search and Rescue Hall (a building located on North Okanagan Regional District grounds in Vernon) where a briefing is given and resources are deployed. It is important that members respond promptly and are properly equipped, as the first hours are critical to the successful outcome of a task.

More than a third of the membership has over a decade of experience, with nearly 10 members having over 20 years. 6 of its members are provincial instructors in the various disciplines; 4 have been BCSARA directors; 4 have been B.C. SAR Volunteer of the Year; 1 has been a Search and Rescue Volunteers Association of Canada director (the federal liaison group between the volunteers and the federal government); and 4 have won National SAR Awards. And over the years, VSAR has received numerous commendations and awards from EMBC, the RCMP and various municipal governments.

It is worth noting that VSAR operates on a 100% volunteer basis and volunteers are not reimbursed for the time they must take away from their family and work for task operations, training and administration.
