Arrowsmith Search and Rescue
Welcome to ASAR



Arrowsmith Search and Rescue is a group of dedicated volunteers who provide a vital lifeline to those who are lost or injured in the Arrowsmith region on Vancouver Island for over 50 years. Our coverage ranges from Cook Creek to Lantzville, out to the east end of Cameron Lake to Jedidiah and Lasqueti Islands. From the rugged wilderness to urban and shoreline searches, we put all of our skills and training towards keeping our community safe, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This includes our specialized teams of rope rescue, swift water rescue, equine and ATV rescue. We continue to be forever grateful for the support from local government, businesses and individuals who have contributed resources toward training and equipment which is essential to keeping our group proficient.
