We extend our sincere condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Tim Jones, the team leader of Vancouver’s North Shore Rescue.
Tim’s dedication to bringing people home safely – the searchers and the sought – was legendary. He made no apologies for high standards and expectations. Our crew witnessed this first-hand when we filmed with North Shore Rescue for our recent documentary To The Rescue.
As someone who volunteered thousands of hours to North Shore Rescue, Tim was unwavering in his belief that search and rescue was a fundamental service that should never incur charges. Instead, he has spent much time lately advocating for ongoing stable funding for his team and all other search and rescue operations in Canada.
Tim’s family has lost a husband and father, the BC Ambulance Service and North Shore Rescue have lost a passionate colleague, leader and friend, and Vancouver’s Lower Mainland has lost a guardian.
