Years of Search and Rescue


BAYSAR Air Search and Rescue, North Bay

In the 30 years that BAYSAR has been in operation, its volunteers have been involved in dozens of air and ground searches in the North Bay and surrounding areas and has earned many accolades from police forces and the Canadian military. Air searches have involved our members flying aboard Royal Canadian Air Force SAR C-130 Hercules and Griffon helicopters and our own civilian aircraft, in wide-ranging operations that have taken us as far west as Thunder Bay, east to North Eastern Quebec, south to the outskirts of Toronto and north to James Bay.
