Toronto Heavy Urban Search and Rescue Team places first in Search and Rescue Games
  
On October 15, the Toronto Heavy Urban and Search Rescue Team (HUSAR) team
competed and placed first in the Search and Rescue Games, as part of the
SARSCENE 2003 Conference, held at Kingston, Ontario.

The Toronto HUSAR team received the Search and Rescue Cup for the top team of
Canadian organizations to provide search and rescue capabilities in the field.
The team is comprised of Toronto Fire Services, Toronto Emergency Medical
Services, Works and Emergency Services, and the Toronto Police Service
personnel.

The Toronto HUSAR team enhances public safety in the City of Toronto and in the
Province of Ontario by ensuring that a competent, multi-disciplinary team is
available to respond to large-scale or complex natural or human-caused heavy
urban search and rescue emergencies in a planned, co-ordinated and timely
manner.

The Toronto HUSAR team members are to be congratulated for their outstanding
training and performance in the Search and Rescue Games.
