WE NEED YOUR HELP!!

Thousand Islands Ground Search and Rescue (TIGSAR) is a Volunteer SAR team. This team operates under the Ontario Search and Rescue Volunteer Association (OSARVA). OSARVA is the Governing body for volunteer search and rescue teams within the Province of Ontario. They are the liaison between the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), National Search and Rescue Secretariat (NSS), Emergency Management Ontario (EMO) and the Volunteer SAR teams. OSARVA is also responsible for the instruction and certification of the "Basic Searcher" status as initiated and mandated by the OPP.

Team members train in the classroom and conduct field practical exercises on a regular basis. The safety of others and our team members is essential. Our goal is to offer a team equipped and ready respond when called upon to aid the local authorities in our community. We also offer programs for school children and adults called Hug-a-Tree and Adventure Smart.

In order to complete this task there is important equipment needed, to outfit our team and ensure our operational readiness. Radios and GPS, are a couple of pieces of essential equipment, as well as the appropriate insurance to cover our team. In that we are a volunteer organization, we are looking for sponsorship and support from businesses/organizations in our community so that we can best be prepared to step forward in a time of need.

We currently have eighteen members on our team with new members coming on board regularly.  We also offer programs for school children and adults called Hug-a-Tree, Adventure Smart, and Paddle Smart.  We would be happy to come and speak to your group or school, just contact us for more information!!

If you are able, your financial assistance would be put to excellent use and would be extremely appreciated.

Thank you for your time and consideration of this matter.
Sincerely, Kevin Gill TIGSAR President, Sherri Dufton TIGSAR Treasurer, Catherine Gill TIGSAR Secretary, And The TIGSAR Team
