TUMBLER RIDGE, B.C. – A successful search and rescue mission was completed by Tumbler Ridge Search and Rescue on Monday morning.

According to a Facebook post, a subject was extracted from the Core Lodge. The post says North Peace Search and Rescue and Prince George Search and Rescue teams responded to calls for assistance as well.

Tumbler Ridge Search and Rescue used an Anglo-American mine site as a landing zone for the extraction.

With 20 members based in Tumbler Ridge, this team serves the northeast region of British Columbia near the Alberta border, responding mostly to winter rescues.

The British Columbia Search and Rescue Association is made up of 2,500 volunteers in 79 groups. The Association responds to around 1,700 incidents per year.
