Project of the heart 

As an all-volunteer organization, members of the Halifax Regional Search and Rescue team are used to being on the giving side of community service; but recently, we were on the receiving side and would like to thank the people who helped us.

At our base in Lakeview, we did not have a garage large enough to store all of our Search and Rescue vehicles together and had to drive to other locations within HRM to pick up our vehicles to go to a search. This was not in the best interest of anyone.

Then the Nova Scotia Home Builders Association came to our rescue through their Homebuilders Care Program, developed to allow their association to give back to the community by providing renovations for local not-for-profit organizations. They built our team a three-bay garage that will allow us to hold our vehicles at one location. We want to thank CEO Paul Pettipas and Central Nova president Peter Briand and all of their members for the donations of material and labour to make this wish a reality.

NSHBA members worked alongside our team members, who also volunteered in the construction by doing whatever was necessary to help. However, it was the NSHBA volunteers who really took this on as a project of the heart and gave us a state-of-the-art garage to protect our Search and Rescue gear. Thank you.

Tony Rodgers, spokesperson,

Halifax Regional Search and Rescue
