It has been said the that closure of FAA and RAF SAR Sea King flights was a necessary cost cutting exercise, but closure of these valuable services was a cheap price cut. The final costing may be an increase because reducing SAR cover leads to increasing loss that more than cancels any price reduction. Some of that loss is human life which is priceless.

2016 is upon us, and with it, a boatload of new snow on the local mountains. The picturesque snowcapped peaks, literally a million dollar view, lures locals and visitors alike to the North Shore. From literally anywhere in Metro Vancouver, those enticed by the allure of the mountains can get there with only a short drive, a slightly longer bus ride, or even on a bicycle.

Thank You to Unique Accommodations

Today, Mark Teasdale and Nina Ferentinos, along with their son Carsen presented NSR with a donation for $600 and a Nikon Coolpix P900 super zoom camera on behalf of their company, Unique Real Estate Accommodations Inc. They came straight from the company Christmas Party, thus the festive attire. The Nikon P900 is new technology which boasts 83x optical zoom/166x Dynamic Fine Zoom! Mark, being a professional photographer realized the potential this technology could have in SAR to spot subjects where a clear view point was available. Absolutely amazing community support of SAR.

Check out the following example footage taken by Mark, title Stanley Park to Granville Island in seconds. Unreal!

On behalf of NSR, thank you very much to the family and their company for the generous donation!
