About GAMRU South Shore Search And Rescue
For more than 25 years, local volunteers from GAMRU South Shore Search And Rescue have sailed into Lake Ontario in every kind of weather to help save their neighbours' lives and protect property. In that time, many skilled and determined volunteers - some with little prior boating experience - have become the pillars of an unlikely system that works uncommonly well. They have earned the respect of their community and their peers in the marine search and rescue community.
2020 was a busy one for GAMRU with the unit responding to over 35 calls, the highest in the unit's history.
GAMRU is a community-based unit that relies almost exclusively on the generosity of the community to operate and maintain its rescue vessels and to train its its 30 plus volunteer crew members.
