Kananaskis Safety Specialist – Mountain Rescue Operations
Kananaskis Public Safety is a government agency that is responsible for mountain rescue, avalanche forecasting, and public awareness with respect to the mountain environment. Mountain rescue operations are carried out by a unique blend of Public Safety Specialists and provincial Conservation Officers to deliver a world class level of rescue response. Their home environment includes swift water, high mountain terrain, technical climbing, backcountry skiing and even the local Off Highway Vehicle areas.
