Seminar Report on Aeronautical and Maritime Search & Rescue

On Wednesday March 02, 2022 Markie Simon and Capt Brian Bovine of the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre in Trenton delivered a wonderful presentation on Search and Rescue. Highlights of the presentation included:

  • The importance of the 3 Ts (Trip planning, Training, Taking the essentials);
  • The difference between 406 Personal Locator Beacons and devices such as SPOT and Garmin;
  • The importance of float plans; and
  • How to reduce the search time in the event that something goes wrong.

The were kind enough to share their presentation with us (see attached).

There was supposed to be a video but technical problems by the club prevented it from being shown. The video is available on Youtube at:
