North Shore Rescue NVG Approval

The British Columbia government has granted approval to North Shore Rescue and Talon Helicopters to use night vision goggles in a new pilot project — the first of its kind in Canada for volunteer search-and-rescue groups. Here, using footage shot for the Knowledge Original series Search and Rescue: North Shore, Talon Helicopters explains how NVG capability will aid rescuers.  North Shore Rescue volunteers respond to approximately 130 incidents per year, and 37 percent of its requests involve “light-compressed” or night operations.
