Guest speakers will be Sergeant Don Webster, Ontario Provincial Police SAR Coordinator, and Detectives Mike Spencer and Larry Larson from Hamilton Police Services.
The outdoor training will take place at 12:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. at 16663 Gore Road in Caledon Ontario and will consist of mock scenarios of missing persons along with emergency medical training which will be provided by Maroun Achkar from the Life Saving Company.
The Ontario ATV Search and Rescue Federation is a not for profit organization that provides local and provincial law enforcement agencies with trained volunteers who utilize all terrain vehicles for the search and rescue of missing persons in Ontario. These machines and their operators are a valuable asset to these operations as they can cover vast areas of habitat and land in a short period of time.
