HASAR is committed to operating at the highest level of safety at all times. Our Safety Platoon was recently created to emphasis our adherence to Occupational Health and Safety as well as ensuring CSA standards are being met in both training and in the field.
The Safety Platoon was stood up to assist with three key areas in HASAR:
- General Search
- Rescue Specialities (ie. Technical Rope Rescue)
