Sad day in the rescue community

Tim Jones was a great spokesman for his team and search and rescue in B.C.

On Sunday (Jan. 19), it was with great sadness that we learned the passing of North Shore main team leader Tim Jones.

Tim passed away on the trail on Mt. Seymour after completing team business at NSR’S cabin. He had been a volunteer with the rescue service since 1987, while also working as an advanced life-support paramedic and paramedic-in-charge for the B.C. Ambulance Service in North Vancouver.

Tim was a great spokesman for his team and search and rescue in B.C. His focus was to ensure we have the tools needed to rescue people in need.

We are very sad that they have lost such a tenacious leader who has done so much for his team and our community.

Hope Search and Rescue would like to extend our deepest condolences to his family and the North Shore Search and Rescue team.

Mario Levesque,

Hope Search and Rescue manager
