I appreciate you setting the record straight and broadening my perspective on the matter. I thought the collective agreement I worked under had provision for covering search&rescue, but I no longer have a copy to check.
For sure, some government workers definitely get a per diem rate for SAR. I don't know whether it is the same as they would get paid at work, but when I was in Nelson SAR, there were definitely folks getting paid for going out on calls during work time.
