Each year the Province of BC recognizes a select few volunteers for their outstanding contributions in the following six specialized categories: PEP Air, Emergency Social Services, Radio Communications, Road Rescue, Search and Rescue and Lifetime Achievement. This year, we’re pleased to see one of our own recognized for his ongoing contributions to Search and Rescue.
John Howe was recently awarded the 2015 BC Public Safety Lifeline Volunteer (PSVL) Award for Search and Rescue. John gives selflessly to our team, the search and rescue community and to the residents of the Sea-to-Sky corridor. He has dedicated more than 28 years to the community and is currently President of the Squamish Search and Rescue Society and an active Search and Rescue Manager.
John is a valued mentor, strong leader and good friend; while not one to seek special attention or recognition, we couldn’t think of a better person to receive this award.
Way to go John!
