[edit] Training Management

ACRO currently uses D4H which is a comprehensive on-line training management system capable of storing training syllabus information, member information, training records, training events, and training locations. As members are added they are provided with log-in username/passwords so that they can access the system. Public members, and other SAR Teams can NOT register for events through D4H at this time without being set up into the system.

[edit] Incorporation as a Society

At one point, ACRO was incorporated as a society under the Societies Act of Alberta, however due to lack of required submissions, the status had lapsed. There was a decision made in the spring of 2009 to re-incorporate, and as of March 15, 2010 ACRO (Alberta Cave Rescue Organization Society) was incorporated as a society within the Province of Alberta.

[edit] Insurance

When tasked by a tasking agency within Alberta, liability would be carried both by individuals and by the tasking agency. The Government of Alberta has committed to covering the insurance costs of SAR Alberta member groups purchasing the SARVAC insurance policy.

ACRO has currently carries the SARVAC insurance through Del Fisher Insurance on behalf of SAR Alberta and AEMA.

[edit] Membership in SAR Alberta

ACRO is currently a regular member of SAR Alberta within the South Central Region.

[edit] Fundraising

ACRO is not currently engaged in active fundraising. We apply annually for a training grant under the AEMA Search & Rescue Training Grant program to host courses. ACRO has successfully received grant funds over the past few years.

Cave rescue is gear intensive and John Chaychuck has generously donated thousands of dollars worth of gear (The official debt owed to him as acknowledged by the board is approximately $5000).

If you wish to donate to ACRO, please contact the provincial coordinator, Michael Kary.
