The Parkland Search & Rescue Society (PSAR) is an Alberta-based volunteer organization that provides trained search volunteers to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and other tasking agencies that request our assistance. Though based in Parkland County, PSAR is utilized throughout north central Alberta in cooperation with other members of the Search & Rescue Association of Alberta.

In addition to training to be the premiere ground search and rescue team in the region, PSAR members also assist law enforcement agencies with evidence searches and are available to assist their communities during natural disasters and other civil emergencies. If someone is lost, injured, or frightened, Parkland Search and Rescue is available 24 hours a day to help find and bring them home. Our members are trained in ground search techniques, standard first aid, tracking techniques, basic rescue, and civil emergency response. We also provide preventative search and rescue education for children through the AdventureSmart program, which includes Hug A Tree, Snow Safety, and Survive Outside presentations.
