To the Rescue

Produced by Sue Ridout, Dreamfilm Productions; Directed by Melanie Wood for CBC Docs.

As more urban adventurers seek recreational thrills than ever before, search and rescue teams are pushed to the limit trying to save them. GPS technology – and the assumption that help is just a cell phone call away – have changed the way we play, but the rescue system is chronically underfunded and struggling to keep up with the new demand. To the Rescue follows dramatic searches as they unfold, and finds a rescue system patched together with volunteers who risk their own lives to save others.
