Miramichi Ground Search and Rescue (MGSAR) is 1 of 10 search and rescue teams located in New Brunswick, Canada.  We have the largest jurisdiction in the province with an extremely diverse terrain ranging from Boiestown to Neguac to Mount Carleton Provincial Park to Richibucto. We currently have approximately 40 operational members and we are always recruiting!

MGSAR is a non-profit, charitable organization and is 100% volunteer based – we do not have any paid positions. All donations go towards running the operational rescue team. We rely heavily on the generous support and contributions by those in our community.

Our dedicated volunteers participate in training to obtain the skills necessary to respond to searches including courses in orienteering, survival, search management, tracking, first aid, and CPR.


Our team is always on-call and available to respond 24/7/365 in all types of weather and in every season.

MGSAR members work closely with the RCMP, Miramichi Police Service, EMO NB, local firefighters, other NBSAR teams, and many others.
