ROYAL CANADIAN MARINE SEARCH AND RESCUE PARTNERS WITH WOUNDED WARRIORS CANADA
VICTORIA, BC – Wounded Warriors Canada is proud to announce a new partnership with the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCMSAR). This new partnership will provide an additional layer of mental health service support for RCMSAR members.
“Today’s announcement recognizes the fact that no one service, association, government agency, or organization will ever be the 100% solution for our First Responders in need of mental health support. When a member is struggling, it doesn’t matter where, when or how their injury occurred. What matters is that our First Responders and their family members know that we are in this together – working to ensure they receive the help they so rightly deserve. We are proud to partner with the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue and look forward to doing our part to support their members in their time of need.” – Scott Maxwell, Executive Director of Wounded Warriors Canada.
“Our first priority is the safety of our volunteers, and that includes caring for their mental health. RCMSAR members can be exposed to traumatic situations while responding to marine emergencies, and our partnership with Wounded Warriors Canada will provide our members and their families with an additional network of outstanding support.” – Pat Quealey, Chief Executive Officer of RCMSAR.
