Arc’teryx is proud to continue its advocacy toward education and safety in the backcountry by continuing as the official outerwear sponsor of the BC Search and Rescue Association (BCSARA).
BCSARA acts as a liaison between Emergency Management British Columbia, the agency that oversees emergency response on a provincial level, the RCMP and local police forces who handle missing persons cases, and local SAR groups.
Association with BCSARA allows Arc’teryx to directly support BC SAR groups that represent the over 2500 hard-working volunteers who work countless hours to rescue over 1000 people every year, providing a critical service to BC backcountry users.
Arc’teryx provides purpose-built products to meet the demanding needs of rescue organizations by designing and testing products in the field with mountain professionals. Partnerships of this nature reflect core Arc’teryx values of leadership through innovation and education.
