Tauranga Land Search & Rescue - Providing search and rescue support for the lost, missing and injured
Our SAR operations are provided free of charge to the victim. Consequently we require funding to help us keep our equipment up to date.Bay of Plenty
Tauranga Land Search & Rescue is a volunteer organisation assisting the Police with Search & Rescue (SAR) operations including but not limited to suburban, urban, wilderness, regional and forest parks, rural areas and shoreline searches in conjunction with the Coastguard and Surf Life Saving New Zealand. Tauranga LandSAR helps to provide a safety net for the rare occasions when trips into the back country don’t go as planned.
Apart from maintaining a reasonable level of personal fitness and owning appropriate quality outdoor equipment and clothing, our LandSAR members are committed to train regularly and attend to SAR operations, often at short notice.
Comprehensive training is given to each volunteer on search methods and tracking techniques, bush craft and outdoor skills, map and compass navigation, survival skills, river crossing and water travel, first aid, communications and technology, helicopter operations and safety issues, ropes and weather patterns and effects.
Our SAR operations are provided free of charge to the victim and the government. Consequently we require outside funding to help us keep our protective gear and equipment up to date and operating at a safe standard.
