Halifax Search & Rescue is a 100% non-profit, registered charity that receives limited provincial and city grants each year to support its operations. Halifax Municipality has contributed considerably to our operational expenses in recent years, and we are now reimbursed by EMO for all search-related requirements during a search and rescue or civil emergency operation.
Beyond day-to-day operations, we continue to rely heavily on fundraising for expenses such as the maintenance and purchase of specialized equipment, vehicles, training and safety gear needed to help us bring lost persons home.
Support from individuals and organizations enables us to focus on the task at hand while training personnel to respond to lost-person incidents and civil emergencies year round. Halifax Search & Rescue would like to thank the following sponsors for their generous grant and sponsorship contributions in 2016:
