For our Rescue Operations

Your Donations Save Lives

At Tri-County Ground Search and Rescue Inc. (TCGSAR), we’re on a mission to ensure no one remains lost or in distress. For over 32 years, our volunteers have dedicated their time and skills to reunite missing loved ones with their families in Moncton, NB, and surrounding areas. Our commitment is simple but profound: “That others may live.”

Why Your Donation Matters

A Beacon of Hope: Every donation fuels our operations, enabling us to maintain readiness and respond promptly when someone goes missing. Your support helps us purchase essential equipment, provide comprehensive training for our volunteers, and cover operational costs that are vital for our life-saving missions.

We are extremely grateful to Moncton Car Guys for their generous donation.

Cost of Service

It is estimated that New Brunswick’s volunteer provincial search and rescue teams donate in excess of 45,000 hours annually, and save the province over $4.2 million per year, in addition to freeing up policing resources that can be utilized elsewhere.

Our Operating Budget

Tri-County GSAR relies heavily on donations from businesses, communities, and the general public to maintain their operational readiness. In fact, over 50% of their operating budget each year comes from these donations, providing the funds needed to maintain their mobile command post and purchase new equipment to ensure they are effective when tasked to search for missing persons, or help in emergencies.

The operating requirements are typically covered by team fund-raising events, community contributions, and provincial government grant monies. Of course, the contributions of the members themselves are significant.

Our Capital Assets

The team’s equipment includes their mobile Command Post and Equipment Trailer, communications equipment and medical gear, as well as basic and technical search equipment.
