A five year $108m plan will see 4 new stations built in British Columbia, to boost the regions rescue assets.

The locations were chosen after gaps were found in the areas search and rescue response capabilities.

New rescue vessels will include a fast-rescue craft as well as a 19 meter vessel that will be able to search up to 120 miles offshore!

Further details are available here.

Maritime Rescue wishes the new stations and crew all the very best for the future.
