Quesnel Search and Rescue is grateful to the BC Telephone Pioneers Quesnel Chapter for their donation to acquire a laptop computer for our Man Tracking training program.

When the Telephone Pioneers closed their accounts, their members decided the remaining funds should go to a project that had a connection with telephone employees’ service to the community.

The decision was made to honour John Kuzek, who had past-away in 2005.

John Kuzek was a long time B.C. Telephone Company employee and a long time member of Quesnel Search and Rescue (QSAR).

During Kuzek’s long time membership with QSAR he attained a level of proficiency at Man Tracking where he was considered one of the top trackers in British Columbia.

As a memorial to Kuzek’s dedicated service to teaching search and rescue members around the province in the skill of Man Tracking, the purchase of a laptop computer was made  for the purpose of continuing his legacy of training Man-Tracking, wherever training is conducted in B.C. and elsewhere.
