BC Search and Rescue Teams

Since the BC Search and Rescue association maintains a list of BC SAR teams and a map of the regions they are responsible for, I am no longer maintaining this list.

Instead, I am embedding a twitter feed of all BC SAR groups. Feel free to contact me if you would like to be included in this list.
