SAR out of Polar Bear Swim

The Fill the Boot drive went amazingly well this year, as the generosity of Sunshine Coast residents showed itself once again. However, there will not be search and rescue (SAR 14) support of the Polar Bear Swim at Armours Beach this New Year’s Day.
First responder boots took in $26,842.98 this year, with RCM SAR Stations 12, 14, and 61, Land SAR, and firefighters from Gibsons to Egmont taking part. This amount was more than ever before and shows the Christmas spirit is alive and well in this most unusual of years. In Gibsons, SAR 14 took in over $2,000 more than last year. It’s clear that, even from our bubbles, we want to help those who may be in need this year.
SAR 14 members were happy to be involved for the Elves Club, but we are unable to support the Armours Beach Polar Bear Swim this New Year’s Day. Because of the COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings, we will not be providing life-saving rescue services, hot chocolate, or completion certificates. As always, if you do decide to venture into or onto the ocean on Jan. 1 or any other day, be safe. We wish you all the best for 2021! Submitted by SAR 14
