A new look for the National Search and Rescue Secretariat on the Web

The National Search and Rescue Secretariat recently updated the Website to better serve our SAR stakeholders and Canadians. The new site increases accessibility and usability to information on the National Search and Rescue Program and the National Search and Rescue Secretariat.

Over the next few months between August and December 2013, we will be repopulating the site with updated information.
