Search & Rescue: North Shore is a 5-episode series following the highly skilled volunteer members of North Shore Rescue (NSR) as they find and rescue people in distress in the rugged mountains, canyons, forests and urban environments of North Vancouver, BC. The North Shore is both strikingly beautiful and notoriously dangerous due to its jagged drop offs and dense forests. Its topography combined with its proximity to the city of Vancouver make the this some of the most “popular” and challenging rescue terrain in the country. With over 150 call outs a year, membership in NSR entails no small level of personal sacrifice. Through the lens of real rescues, this documentary is a chance to get to know some of the dedicated people who give their time to the busiest volunteer search and rescue organization in the country.
