British Columbia Tracking Association members from around the Province attended an In-house Novice /Advanced tracking course hosted by the Princeton Ground Search and Rescue team during the weekend of April 25 to the 27.

Members attended this course to learn and practice their man tracking skills. Tracking is a vital tool used by SAR teams to quickly determine the direction of travel and ultimately help find lost subjects. The 40 members who attended the first course of the year fully enjoyed themselves.

The course was held at the Wildfire branch Sierra’s suppression camp near Martins Lake and offered up some very challenging ground to track on. PGSAR would like to thank the camp for allowing its use.

We would also like to thank the Princeton Bakery for the delicious food they catered to us all weekend.
