The local volunteer, non-profit, Ground Search and Rescue (GSAR) team, Halifax Regional Search and Rescue, asked the Backcountry 4×4 Club for assistance in providing parking lot attendants at a fund raiser. The club was able to assist with 4 folks volunteering on a busy ‘summer’ Saturday. The event was held at Exhibition Park, Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014.
The assistance of the club helped raise several thousand $ in funds and raise awareness of both ground search and rescue and the club.
Several members of the club are also past, current, (and probably future!) members of the HRSAR team, the Eastern Shore Ground Search and Rescue team, and the Lunenburg County Search and Rescue team. There seems to be a natural fit for 4×4 and search and rescue folks!
Personal 4×4 vehicles of club members have been used to assist GSAR in the past as well and will be reported here next time.
