File # 2017-SAR

In early October, Island District RCMP Commander, Chief Superintendent, Sean Sullivan presented awards to RCMP officers and others deserving recognition.

Arrowsmith Search and Rescue members, Nick Rivers (President and Search Manager) and Paul Nash (Vice President and Ground Search Team Leader) both received The District Commander’s (Sean Sullivan) Certificate of Appreciation.

On January 24, 2017, Rivers and Nash were instrumental in conducting a ground search for an 87 year old male who had been lost for over 24 hours. The search was conducted in a rural bush area with winter weather and dark conditions. Once the 87 year old male was located, the real work began as Rivers and Nash skillfully assisted the male out of the bush and to awaiting Paramedics for medical attention. The professionalism and dedication to training and duty shown by these Search and Rescue members is exemplary.
