TO THE RESCUE

To the Rescue goes behind-the-scenes in Canada’s haphazard search and rescue system, and finds an emergency in the making.

As more urban adventurers seek outdoor recreational thrills than ever before, search and rescue (SAR) teams are pushed to the limit trying to save them from the elements – and themselves.

GPS technology – and the assumption that help is just a cell phone call away – have changed the way amateur adventurers play, but the rescue system is chronically underfunded and struggling to keep up with the new demand.

To the Rescue follows dramatic searches as they unfold, and finds a rescue system patched together with volunteers who constantly risk their own lives to save others. Is the over-taxed system putting out its own SOS call?
