About The Conference

SARscene 2021 will bring together search and rescue responders from all SAR agencies and disciplines, emergency response and emergency management organizations from across Canada and beyond to share knowledge, best practices, and discuss emerging issues. 

Hosted by Search and Rescue Saskatchewan Association of Volunteers (SARSAV), the conference coincides with our 25th Anniversary. Come celebrate with us! 

This is the first ever SARscene hosted by SARSAV and has been made possible by the SAR NIF Program through Public Safety Canada and the National Search and Rescue Secretariat.
