Halifax Search & Rescue is dedicated to training and has one of the most active volunteer SAR training schedules in the country. We offer five core module courses to all team members and schedule regular training—year round, day and night, and in all weather conditions—to keep our skills current.

HSAR also educates the public on a variety of topics, including map and compass navigation, GPS use and navigation, and woods safety. We offer public courses and programs throughout the year that focus on practical, hands-on learning. Team members also educate hundreds of children annually through the popular Hug-a-Tree program.

To register for the next public course or request a Hug-a-Tree presentation, send an email to info@halifaxsar.ca.
