Meet Erin Heeney, June’s Crew Member of the month!
Erin has been an RCMSAR 12 member for 1.8 years. In this short time, she has gained 557 total hours of volunteer service, which includes 117 hours of sea time. In the fall, Erin attended and was successful at SARNAV 1 and also received her SVOP (Small Vessel Operator Proficiency) certification. She has also completed her MED A3, Flood and Swiftwater Awareness Course and is a certified Pleasure Craft Safety Checker.
This past year, Erin was a co training officer for Station 12 – ensuring that training was top notch, covering all of the lessons to assist new crew to get out on the water and become the best they can be!
Erin’s hard work, dedication, bubbly attitude, knowledge of SAR operations and boat handling skills has paid off – she will be heading to RHIOT (Rigid Hull Inflatable Operator Training) school in February in Bamfield, ready to crush it, as she always does! Bravo Zulu, Erin!
