How to find the best suitable team for you.

In Québec, every team of volunteers is independent from each other.  They are all managed differently and their approach may differ from one organization to another.


Some teams focus their attention on Search and Rescue activities, whereas others get involved in different aspects of public safety.  Amongst our teams, some are specialized in a field in particular (ATV, K9, telecommunications). There is something for everyone.


Every team of the Association has one common goal: to work together in order to find a missing person.

As every team’s approach differs, it is important to ensure that the team you want to join meets your expectations.


Our teams are divided up in 10 districts in order to correspond to regional mapping used by the Sûreté du Québec, so that the deployment of our volunteers is facilitated.


Here are some questions you should ask yourself:


Where is the team located?

Where do the meetings occur?

How much are the annual costs?

How much does the training cost?

How often are the meetings?

What equipment will you need and how much will it cost?

Do the members wear a uniform and how much does it cost?

What are the team’s expectations amongst its members?

What are the activities, other than Search and Rescue operations?

When is the enrolment period?
