The Terrace Search and Rescue team is looking for a few good fund-raisers.
The team would like to buy a $93,000 towed sonar that can scan larger areas more effectively than their current drop sonar, as well as a grappling machine.
But beyond major equipment purchases, the fund-raising committee will help look towards future needs.
Dave Jephson is the team leader with the Terrace Search and Rescue.
He says regular wear and tear on their equipment is also costly.
Buying two new dry-suits costs $1,200, and new tires for their water rescue truck will come in at $3,000.
Jephson says there are people out there who would like to help, but might not want to jump into the water or climb the mountain.
He says ideally they’re looking for someone with strong community ties, experience in an area, and ultimately a people person.
Anyone who’s interested in helping out can call Dave Jephson at 250-615-7451, Dwayne Sheppard at 250-638-8630 or contact the Terrace Firehall.
