We Are Rescue

VRA Rescue NSW is a leading volunteer-based organisation dedicated to providing emergency rescue services throughout New South Wales 24/7/365.

We are focused on community safety and support, and we play a crucial role in emergency management and response in the region.

Our organisation is made up of specialist rescue operators working for their communities in over 50 locations across New South Wales and our members are primary responders for Road Crash Rescue, General Land Rescue, Vertical Rescue and just about any type of specialist rescue encountered by Emergency Service personnel. The VRA also includes Communications, Cave Rescue and Ski Patrols.

Our Members

And their Rescue Squads, are accredited by the Minister for Emergency Services, through the State Rescue Board, as rescue operators in their designated field.

From the unforgiving highways and roads that make up the vital circulatory system of New South Wales through to the rugged forests and alpine areas of this great state our small army of unpaid professionals are ready to respond at a moment's notice.
