Fraser Valley – The upside with the sunny weather, is that the conditions for a hike are simply awesome. Unfortunately accidents do happen.
From Chilliwack Search and Rescue social media on Sunday January 29: Chilliwack Search and Rescue were called into action today to assist BC Ambulance in bringing for a patient with a lower leg injury from Mt Thom. After some patient packaging and a transport down the trail, the subject was handed over to BC Ambulance for further medical care.
All Search and Rescue operations emphasize that they are always on call 24/7 and contrary to rumour, NO, they do not charge for their service. They DO need donations to keep volunteers trained and well equipped.
