The Wakatipu SAR Group comprises individuals who volunteer their time and are often supported in their search & rescue work by employers who grant leave of absence from their paid employment. Our group operates in the “Adventure Capital” of NZ, and are kept busy with various live operations.
With the numerous work face each year, there is a need to train to meet critical situations that may be encountered to search for and rescue victims. This work can also require specialised rescue equipment and training which does not come cheap. The Group is always thankful for the help and financial support from the community, groups and organisations to allow our work to proceed in a professional manner.
