Summary As more urban adventurers seek outdoor recreational thrills than ever before, search-and-rescue teams are pushed to the limit trying to save those adventurers from the elements - and from themselves. GPS technology and the assumption that help is just a cell-phone call away have changed the way amateur adventurers play, but the rescue system is chronically underfunded and struggles to keep up with the new demand. To The Rescue goes behind-the-scenes of Canada's search-and-rescue system and finds that the system itself is an emergency in the making - patched together by the volunteers who put their lives on the line with each and every rescue.
