WATCH: West Vancouver man honoured for 50 years of volunteering on N. Shore mountains

A search and rescue volunteer on the North Shore received a lifetime achievement award today for his almost 50 years of service.

Ron Royston spent almost five decades volunteering as a first aid ski patrol member and with North Shore Rescue.

He was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award at a ceremony in Victoria today by Attorney General and Justice Minister Suzanne Anton.

Royston was presented with the award during the 2014 Public Safety Lifeline Volunteer (PSLVs) of the year awards.

The awards are meant to recognize British Columbians who have made significant contributions to emergency and disaster response in B.C.
