In April 2019, the newly formed HASAR was deployed under Mutual Aid to the Ottawa area to assist with massive and destructive flooding. Ten members of HASAR attended for over a week to assist with sandbagging, property checks and general natural disaster preventative assistance.
In March 2020, when many service groups had to shut down due to the SARS-COVID-19 pandemic, HASAR stood up to take up the Meals on Wheels program for Huron, Perth and South Bruce areas. According to One Care, the Meals on Wheels provider, HASAR was instrumental in 'saving' the program due to our efforts.
In December 2020, One Care again reached out to HASAR for volunteers to maintain its Meals on Wheels program throughout Huron County. From December until May 2021, HASAR provided drivers near weekly to assist and ensure the community was fed and cared for.
