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 speciality teams that train at different times.  You must be a member for a minimum of 6 months to attend the speciality teams training.

If you are looking to become a member, the next opportunity will be August 2022.

You can also email us with questions.
