Search and Rescue (SAR)

Tutorial - who is the Canadian Coast Guard?

Mandated Waters

Oceans – the three (Pacific, Atlantic, Arctic)

Lakes – the Great ones (Erie, Huron, Superior..)

Rivers – the big ones (St Lawrence, Mackenzie…)

Not Mandated but have a Presence

Great Slave Lake, Lake Winnipeg, Lake Simcoe

Not Mandated

Inland lakes and rivers - Lake Muskoka, etc.

Tutorial - who is the Canadian Coast Guard?

All types of boater but we only see /interact with the

Boater with a Problem – or – the Problem Boaters on the Oceans, Great Lakes & connecting waterways.

Canadian Coast Guard Perspective

What Trends do we see out there?

  • Training

  • Technology

  • Troubles

  • Tidbits


Peter garapick superintendent mcts c a region canadian safe boating council

Training – has the PCOC made a difference?

Premise:

  • Stats show that most boaters have the card.

  • Regardless of how they got it, they had to think.

  • On the way to the boat, safety light bulb comes on:

    • “be safe”; or

    • “don’t get dinged by the police”


Peter garapick superintendent mcts c a region canadian safe boating council

Training – has the PCOC made a difference?

Results:

  • Boaters are dealing with issues themselves due to having the safety gear onboard and knowledge to self rescue

  • More boaters wearing their PFDs

  • Older boaters still have bad habits, younger boaters learning from the new / current boating environment

  • CCG responding to fewer simple incidents, responding to the more critical situations

Training – has the PCOC made a difference?

Future Challenge:

  • Paddle Sports, evolving boating activities

  • Maintaining relevancy:

    • Content - as boating environment changes

    • Delivery – keeping up with the times

    • Enforcement - resources available to be on the water


Peter garapick superintendent mcts c a region canadian safe boating council

Technology – what is the boater using?

Premise:

  • Boaters are no different than landlubbers and have exported technology onto the water whether it was designed to be there or not.


Peter garapick superintendent mcts c a region canadian safe boating council

Technology – what is the boater using?

Results:

  • Smart phones with apps used in place of traditional nautical devices (compass, VHF radio, charts)

  • Laptops, e-Charts, VHF DSC, GPS…

  • Safety gear becoming part of the day on the water:

    • PLBs becoming more common

    • PFD wear rate up


Peter garapick superintendent mcts c a region canadian safe boating council

Technology – what is the boater using?

Challenge:

  • Limitations of electronic devices or using them

    • reliable or backup power source

    • cell phone range

    • linking devices together to have them work correctly

  • Isolationism of the self contained boater

    • not using VHF radio in case of emergency

    • heads down navigation

  • Keeping up with Technology

    • should CCG Tweet the weather, MARBs, NOTSHIPs

    • do we need (as many) aids to navigation


Peter garapick superintendent mcts c a region canadian safe boating council

Troubles – how is the boater getting help?

Premise:

  • CCG is responding to fewer simple incidents

  • Boaters that much more cognizant of costs of getting into trouble on the water:

    • Repairs

    • Response

    • Fines


Peter garapick superintendent mcts c a region canadian safe boating council

Troubles – how is the boater getting help?

Results:

  • Boaters not driving around without a spare

  • Private (US and Canadian) response agencies operating on Canadian waters

  • “CAA” like arrangements for boaters

  • Boaters helping boaters (MARB)


Peter garapick superintendent mcts c a region canadian safe boating council

Troubles – how is the boater getting help?

Challenge:

  • Some things don’t change:

    • Alcohol

    • Testosterone

    • The old canoe behind the shed


Peter garapick superintendent mcts c a region canadian safe boating council

Tidbits – other items to think about?

  • First Nations

    • Engagement nearby and further afield

  • Arctic Boating

    • Training requirements

    • Response capabilities

  • Climate Change

    • Longer season, more messaging / resources

    • Earlier seasons cold water

  • Economy

    • older boats /lower maintenance / safety second priority
