Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue Society (CFVSAR) is raising money by installing Christmas lights for the public this year.

The “members in training” recruit class of 2011 will provide the service on Sunday, Dec. 4 for a minimum donation of $250. This includes installing lights along roof lines and taking them down in January.

Residents or homeowners must supply their own lights. Donations are tax-deductible and will go towards the purchase of safety equipment and outdoor clothing required for members in training.

CFVSAR provides search and rescue services to Langley, the City of Abbotsford and Sumas Mountain, averaging 43 calls a year.
