FGHR Changes it’s name to PGRHR

Prince George, B.C. – The organization of volunteers who drop everything to go out to some of the most horrendous carnage seen on the regions roadways has officially changed its name.

Fort George Highway Rescue Society is now known as Prince George Regional Highway Rescue. It is an auxiliary non-

profit, volunteer-based organization providing road rescue services to the communities within the 24,000 kilometres of the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George. Fort George Highway Rescue Society was created by several local members of the B.C. Ambulance Service in 1981 following an incident in which a man died after being trapped in his vehicle with no way to free him. 

Chief Keith Laboucan says the new name more clearly defines the area in which the organization provides service. The services include extrication, low-angle rescue and vehicle fire suppression.

PGRHR relies on gaming grants and the expertise of volunteers who donate their time to save lives.  Those wishing to donate to the organization or wanting more information about the crucial role its members play can contact Chief Laboucan at
