Canada Task Force 2 (Can-TF2), based in Alberta, is an 'all-hazards' Disaster Response Team with a diverse capacity to respond to a variety of man-made and natural disasters.  

The team is composed of over 100 Rescue Specialists, Doctors, Paramedics, Structural Engineers, Communications Specialists, Canine & Technical Searchers, Logistics Specialists, and Command Staff, who volunteer their time to train and prepare so that they can respond as a highly specialized team, capable of handling a wide variety of demanding disaster and rescue situations.

Can-TF2's mandate is to respond with up to 70 specialized team members within 6 hours, via ground or air, and to operate 24 hours a day for up to 14 days with the specialized equipment to be fully self-sustaining. 

Can-TF2 is also one of only four nationally recognized Heavy Urban Search and Rescue (HUSAR) teams in Canada.  The additional three teams are located in Vancouver (Can-TF1), Toronto (Can-TF3), and Manitoba (Can-TF4). Collectively, these four teams lead Canada's emergency response initiative in Urban Search and Rescue (USAR).
