Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Station 14 is on call and ready to respond to marine emergencies 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. We are a 100% community-based volunteer organization and our operations serve an area of almost 600 square kilometres in the coastal waters of communities from Port Mellon to Davis Bay. All of our members are unpaid volunteers, fully engaged in supporting our communities and dedicated to saving lives on the water.
Help save lives!
Join our team on the water, on the dock, or onshore.
Learn new skills, meet great people, have fun, and give back to your community! Even if you have no marine or boating experience, many of your life and professional skills will be highly beneficial and we provide additional training as required. Positions are available for active rescue crew, maintenance crew, associated fundraising, outreach & communication teams, and the governing society.
The Rescue Crew are the women and men who respond to calls for assistance on the water. RCMSAR Station 14 is on-call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If being part of our rescue crew appeals to you, we invite you to learn more about the exciting opportunities with us.
We recognize that being part of a rescue crew is not for everyone and appreciate there are many who would still like to help out. Our Support Crew provides the station with knowledge and expertise, as well as the human energy to keep the vessel, equipment, boathouse, and crew in the condition to be a world-class marine search and rescue unit.
If being part of the Rescue or Support Crew doesn't float your boat, you can still be of great help by joining the Gibsons Marine Rescue Society. Without the Society, the rescue crew doesn't leave the dock. A variety of knowledge, expertise, skills, and interests are needed. Even if you have no marine or boating experience, many of your life and professional skills will be highly beneficial.
