#SARscene2021, Good News

SARscene2021

SARscene 2021 WILL be going ahead, and the website and registration will be available soon.

Due to the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have worked very hard over the past few months to move the conference to a virtual platform. The conference will now be a single-stream format, held over two weekends and several evenings. There is something of interest for everyone!

We see this as an opportunity and a challenge to provide you with a unique SAR conference experience. We are looking forward to hosting SARscene September 25 to October 3, 2021.

#SARNIF #sarscene2021

SARscène 2021 aura bien lieu, et le site Web et les inscriptions seront bientôt disponibles.

En raison des incertitudes causées par la pandémie de COVID-19, nous avons travaillé très dur au cours des derniers mois pour faire passer la conférence à une plateforme virtuelle. La conférence se déroulera désormais en une seule fois, sur deux week-ends et plusieurs soirées. Il y a quelque chose d’intéressant pour tout le monde !

Nous considérons la situation comme une occasion et un défi pour vous offrir une expérience unique de conférence SAR. Nous nous réjouissons de pouvoir accueillir SARscène du 25 septembre au 3 octobre 2021.

In Memory of Pete Garvey

Today marks a bittersweet anniversary in the SARSAV world.

3 years ago, S/Sgt Pete Garvey passed away after a courageous battle with cancer.

He was a pillar in Saskatchewan Search and Rescue and supported SARSAV whole heartedly.

After his passing, his sisters wrote a book titled “Life Lessons from a Red Serge” and donate the proceeds from the book to SARSAV to continue our mission.

To date, over $10,000 dollars has been donated to SARSAV from the sale of this book.

Thank you to all of you who purchased this book!

To get a copy of the book – Life Lessons from a Red Serge, please visit
