You Can Help Us Save Lives!

Safety on the water is everyone’s responsibility. But for the volunteer members of Quinte Search And Rescue (QSAR), it’s also a promise – one we hope you will help us keep.

We know there’s a better way.

We’re asking community and business leaders to help fund the vessels and equipment needed to maintain this vital service in the face of growing demand. QSAR gets no funding from municipal, provincial or federal governments; we are paid a stipend by the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary that covers our fuel and insurance costs while on a rescue mission.

Recreational boating is not only a popular local pastime. It is also a major contributor to tourism in the region, drawing enthusiastic boaters to the bay for sport fishing, summer vacations and yachting holidays. A healthy – and safe – boating environment benefits the entire community.

At QSAR, we’re ready to do our part for safety on the water. With your help, we can continue to make the Bay of Quinte area the safe and enjoyable heart of our community. We look forward to speaking to you.
