On behalf of the Executive of North Shore Rescue Team Society, I would like to respectfully state that the basing of the full time Fast Response Vessel at the Kitsilano Coast Guard Base continue.
This vessel plays a vital role in not only marine search and rescue in and outside Vancouver harbor but in support of ground based search and rescue on the North Shore and Indian Arm.
This full-time asset works in unison with the auxiliary volunteer lifeboats boats based at Horseshoe Bay and Deep Cove to ensure that a seamless capability is available 24/7, 365 a days a year.
