LandSAR Wellington saves lives when outdoor adventures go wrong, and helps vulnerable people in Wellington's suburbs.
We provide search and rescue services to the Police and the Rescue Coordination Centre across the Wellington region. Our Members are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help the lost, missing and injured. In a typical year they donate over 6,000 hours of their time to the community. All of our operations are provided completely free of charge to either the victim or government.
Operations can happen anywhere, including suburbs, regional and forest parks, rural areas or along our coast. There's no such thing as a 'typical search' anymore, and we're just as likely to be searching for a missing child or dementia sufferer in the suburbs as we are looking for a tramper in the bush.
