Lost Person? Call 911




Colchester Ground Search and Rescue is a 100% non-profit, registered charity that receives limited grants each year to support its operations from various government entities. Colchester Municipality and the Town of Truro have contributed considerably to our operational expenses in recent years, and we are reimbursed by EMO for all search-related requirements during a search and rescue or civil emergency operation.

Beyond day-to-day operations, we continue to rely heavily on fundraising for expenses such as the maintenance and purchase of specialized equipment, vehicles, training and safety gear needed to help us bring lost persons home.

Support from individuals and organizations enables us to focus on the task at hand while training personnel to respond to lost-person incidents and civil emergencies year round.

Colchester Ground Search and Rescue would like to thank you those who have supported us through the years and those who will support us going forward.
