RCMSAR 106 Shuswap

Saving Lives on the Water


The members of RCMSAR Station 106 are all volunteers, dedicating their time and efforts in service to our communities.  Members meet throughout the year for training, both on water and in the classroom.

Thank You to all the Persons and Organizations who provide SUPPORT to our Station and Volunteers on a Continuing Basis.

Proudly continuing a 150 year tradition of volunteer lifeboats on our British Columbia waters, Shuswap volunteers readily give of their personal time to train and respond to Search and Rescues and Medical Emergencies on the Shuswap Lake system.

RESCUE BASE For Station 106

SAR operations started May 19th, 2012, with Rescue One. Readily apparent, our services were indeed needed, with 44 missions that first year and 51 missions in 2013, Station 106 instantly became one of the busiest in British Columbia.

In 2017, with due diligence in mind, the Society begin investigating “a floating Rescue Base” to safeguard the Society’s assets.
