Because such action was taking place, Diamond said the department also saw that this was a need for the area and redirected its fundraising effort to get the boggan.

He said the closest ground search and rescue unit is in Roddickton Bide Arm, and when an emergency arises in the area it's often the Fire Department that receives the call.
