The Central Cariboo Search and Rescue (CCSAR) is already preparing for the winter ahead, after their busy month of August.
During the month of August, into the beginning of September, CCSAR responded to 23 motor vehicle incidents, and seven land search and rescue calls.
During the busy month, training was going on for members of CCSAR, and also participated in multiple community events and outreach.
CCSAR is looking to make the winter season less busy.
“We urge everyone to start thinking about, and getting prepared for winter driving.” says Debra Bortolussi, Public Relations Coordinator for Central Cariboo Search and Rescue.
“We know that those conditions come every year, and being pre-emptive on ensuring that we keep everyone safe is so important.”
Some things people can do before winter is making sure winter tires are put on vehicles, and include safe driving practices.
