BC Road Rescue is an organized service with members who may be requested to provide support to people involved in out-of-jurisdiction motor vehicle accidents, where specialized skills - such as vehicle extrication, rope rescue and other specialized rescue services - and equipment are required. Responders attend over 2,000 motor vehicle accidents in B.C. each year.
Road Rescue service providers maintain an on-going competency program that includes safety and training techniques for accessing people who may be trapped in a vehicle or machinery. Training may also include hazardous material awareness, embankment rescue, fire suppression and First Responder training.
