HSAR volunteers can expect a high calibre of training covering everything from map and compass, radio communication, woods survival, searching techniques, lost person behaviour, first aid, and more. Five core modules and other regular training events are scheduled year round in all weather conditions, day and night. Our team has one of the most active volunteer SAR training schedules in the country. Opportunities to work with other ground search and rescue teams in Nova Scotia also abound: we may search with other teams and train together at mock searches, workshops, and other exercises.
