Support our organisation provide volunteer services to those who become lost or injured in the outdoors.
Thanks to donations received and fundraising we have now built our new base and are still completing the internal fit out subject to funding.
Donations are welcome to cover the fit out of our base or assist with our expenses for equipment, operational cost overheads and training.
More about us
Kuaotunu Land Search & Rescue is based in Mercury Bay and covers an area from Mercury Bay over to the west coast of the Coromandel Peninsula to the top of the peninsula. We are a volunteer organisation with 30 members donations help us pay for our operational expenses, training and equipment.
In the past Kuaotunu Land SAR members have used personal vehicles to travel to operations and training. Often at their own expense. This often involves towing a 2.5 tonne trailer by a members 4x4. We have recently purchased a 1996 Toyota Landcruiser to tow our First Response Trailer & transport members (it seats 8). We now need to raise funds to pay back the purchase price, fit out the vehicle & to cover insurance and servicing.
