Flood Legacy Bursary

Applications for 2024 are now closed. We will start accepting applicants in January of 2025.

The History

This bursary was established after the extreme flooding that occurred in Alberta in June, 2013. Emergency responders involved in the flooding event felt that the greatest challenge of the crisis was the effective and timely allocation of all available resources. In an effort to ensure more emergency responders were prepared to deal with moving water situations, like river rescues and flood rescues, Raven Rescue created a Flood Legacy Bursary to assist smaller, volunteer departments and SAR teams obtain the right certification to operate safely during swiftwater and flood incidents.

The Bursary Today

As the climate changes, disastrous flood events will continue to affect more of Canada every year. As a result, in 2017, we extended the Flood Legacy Bursary to emergency responders across Canada.
