As the demands of our tasks continue to escalate, Central Okanagan Search and Rescue remains committed to enhancing the capabilities of our team.
In response to the heightened severity of our calls, we have taken steps to bolster our medical expertise.

We have added a physician and experienced flight nurse to our team and have implemented weekly medical training sessions for all members.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Bob and Bruce Callahan of Callahan Property Group for their steadfast support. Both avid outdoorsmen with a passion for supporting backcountry enthusiasts, Bob and Bruce have demonstrated an exceptional dedication to COSAR.

Speaking on behalf of Callahan Property Group, Bruce remarked, “We are thrilled to provide the Central Okanagan Search and Rescue a 3-year commitment to further advance their efforts. As avid outdoor enthusiast, the Central Okanagan Search and Rescue mandate resonates with us. Our backcountry is beautiful and vast and to be shared with our community and visitors alike. It is reassuring that the Okanagan has a capable & skilled team in place to assist when help is needed.”

In a remarkable display of generosity, Callahan Property Group has pledged $75,000 over the next three years to aid COSAR in its mission. Their initial contribution of $25,000 has been allocated towards advanced medical training, procurement of medical supplies, and acquisition of essential equipment.

COSAR president Brad Trites, emphasized the significance of the contribution.
