Squamish SAR to be featured in Knowledge Network docu-series

Season 2 of ‘Search and Rescue: North Shore’ will feature the Squamish Search and Rescue team.

Season 2 of Knowledge Network’s docu-series, Search and Rescue: North Shore, will feature some familiar faces and vistas.

The next iteration of the series is set to debut at the end of May. Episode two of the five-episode season will feature the Squamish Search and Rescue (SAR) team alongside North Shore Rescue (NSR).

“Season 2’s storyline expands further to Squamish, showcasing the courageous efforts of the search and rescue team there,” reads a news release about the series from Knowledge Network.

One of the directors of the series, Grant Baldwin, said in the release the second season will showcase the complexity of some of the rescues performed.

“The complicated retrievals the teams are performing are incredible to see, and we wanted to document more of the process for how these are done—ultimately giving the audience a real sense of what is involved with the rescues they see on the news,” said Baldwin. 

“Modern-day innovative technology, equipment and teamwork with other first responder organizations are helping both NSR and Squamish SAR save lives, and we’re proud to continue to highlight these inspiring stories for Season 2.”

A trailer for Season 2 is available online and numerous clips show Squamish’s well-known features, such as the Stawamus Chief. 

First airing in 2020, the first season of the show garnered many nominations and awards over the next couple of years. The first episode of Season 2 will air on May 28 and culminate with episode five on June 25.

Episodes will be available to stream online for free at or on the Knowledge Network app.
