Search and Rescue is the search for and provision of aid to people in distress or imminent danger.  

Search and rescue (SAR) is the search for and provision of aid to people in distress or imminent danger. The general field of search and rescue includes many specialty sub-fields, typically determined by the type of terrain the search is conducted over. These include mountain rescue; ground search and rescue, including search and rescue dogs (such as K9 units); urban search and rescue in cities; combat search and rescue on the battlefield and air-sea rescue over water.

International Search and Rescue Advisory Group (INSARAG) is a UN organization that promotes the exchange of information between national urban search and rescue organizations. The duty to render assistance is covered by Article 98 of the UNCLOS.


Search and rescue have many definitions, depending on the agency involved and the country in question.

Canadian Armed Forces and Canadian Coast Guard: "Search and Rescue comprises the search for, and provision of aid to, persons, ships or other craft which are, or are feared to be, in distress or imminent danger."

United States Coast Guard: "The use of available resources to assist persons or property in potential or actual distress."

United States Department of Defense: A search is "an operation normally coordinated by a Rescue Coordination Center (RCC) or rescue sub-center, using available personnel and facilities to locate persons in distress," and rescue is "an operation to retrieve persons in distress, provide for their initial medical or other needs, and deliver them to a place of safety."

Air and marine Search and rescue duties in Canada are the responsibility of the Canadian Forces and Canadian Coast Guard in conjunction with volunteer organizations. The Department of National Defence (DND) coordinates the coordinated search and rescue system. SAR operations are organized by Joint Rescue Coordination Centres (JRCC). The JRCC is staffed 24 hours daily by SAR coordinators from the Canadian Coast Guard and Canadian Forces. Authority for the provision of maritime SAR is assigned to the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans by the Canada Shipping Act and the Canada Oceans Act. Ground and inland water search and rescue (GSAR) is the responsibility of provinces and territories, with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and other police forces coordinating operations, often using volunteer GSAR teams operating in specific areas under provincial coordinating bodies. 

The Canada Shipping Act, most recently passed in 2001, is the framework document that funds international SAR activities.

Some municipalities and provinces have their own SAR units:

There are also volunteer non-profit associations that conduct SAR in Canada:

Today as never before, we should be ready to serve our God at any time, anywhere and under any situation. The Bible tells us to seek the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to us. Is it righteous?

The EMMI Chaplains Associates International is for people working as Chaplains in hospitals, jails, and rehabilitation centers, performing funerals, visiting the needy, counselling, EMS, firefighters, Police, and Military.

For whom? If you are a Certified Chaplain with credentials of 26 weeks, you can join our associate ministry and participate in our selected Chaplains Associates Worldwide. 

We exist to provide support and encouragement to chaplains everywhere.

A chaplaincy is an approach to all of life as being in relation. We are not necessarily attached to a specific religious place, a temple, mosque, or church. Our Community Chaplains bridge the secular and the sacred in daily living and dying. 

EMMI  respects individuals of all faith traditions and spiritual expressions and serves equally without discrimination.

Community Clergy Chaplains and Lay Chaplains


May God bless all of you, and please pray for the EMMI Chaplains Associates International.
