Chevron, as part of their investment in local communities, has donated $20,000 to North Shore Rescue towards completing our Rope Rescue Catwalk at the new Rescue Base. At the time the rescue base was completed there were insufficient funds to complete the project, and this generous donation will enable us to complete this final component of our facility. The catwalk will allow members to practice their life-saving skills in a controlled environment. This will decrease wear and tear on equipment, reduce the time involved in driving to training sites, and allow for increased safety for our members.

Chevron has been a member of the BC community for 80 years. We are proud to invest in community organizations and local charities, because we have learned through decades of experience, that our success is also deeply linked to the community’s success in places where we operate. As a volunteer community-based search and rescue team, North Shore Rescue provides an essential life-saving service to the public in the Vancouver region – a service that Chevron welcomes the opportunity to support.Chevron has made nearly $1.5 billion in social investments to local communities, globally, over the past eight years. These investments aim to foster economic growth with a significant focus on health, education and economic development programs and partnerships.
On behalf of North Shore Rescue, I would like to thank Chevron for helping us achieve this goal.
