T-SAR member Kenneth Armes was thanked by the board of Toronto Search and Rescue for his work in training Toronto-area children in water-safety awareness this year. Armes comes to T-SAR with years of service from the Royal Australian Navy, the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary and decades of experience as a boater and yachtsman.
Derek Cartier, Commanding Officer, presented the first T-SAR Certificate of Achievement to Kenneth on 17 September 2014; using an informal gathering of board members as the occasion to surprise Armes with a gesture of thanks. While a lot of work has been achieved in preparing the way for the debut of T-SAR as a new player in public safety on all of Toronto's waterfront, Kenneth's work was the first delivery of an effective service to the public.
Much more will follow as T-SAR continues to ramp up over the winter, but Kenneth will always be esteemed for his pioneering work.
