We are not accepting new applications for volunteers at this time as we are full.

We are one of the busiest Search and Rescue (SAR) groups on the South Island with 15-30 incidents per year.  We currently have approximately 50 regular members, from all walks of life.

All members are part of our regular Ground SAR team (GSAR), which trains twice a month. We expect our new recruits to attend a minimum of 70% of the regular GSAR training in their first year while on probation.

We also have several specialty teams that train at different times.  You must be a member for a minimum of 6 months to attend the specialty teams training.

You can also email us with questions.
