·1 min read

The Huron & Area Search and Rescue (HASAR) were pleased to be the recipient of a donation of a rescue communications rope and communications headsets from local business SED Technologies, on June 29. HASAR is a professional search and rescue organization made up of volunteers from the South Bruce, Huron, Perth and Lambton areas; all of which are trained to a provincial standard. The team covers the area from Port Franks to Kincardine and from the lake to Sebringville.

HASAR is introducing Huron County’s first professional rope rescue team, and this equipment will be utilized immediately by those members. The rope donated, allows for communication systems to be set up on either end, ensuring crisp, clear and hands-free communication in any situation, including swift water or ice rescues.

The Eberl brothers are regular contributors to the community and said they are grateful for the “opportunity to support a local agency – this is fabulous.”

“We like working with agencies like these because they can uasist us in improvements, (by providing) their feedback,” said Rolf.
