SEARCH AND RESCUE VOLUNTEER?

An operational SAR volunteer is a person who, of their own free will, and without expectation of profit, gives their time, effort and skill in responding to emergencies by carrying out lifesaving SAR operations, as required 24/7, as part of an organisation recognised by the statutory authorities.

SUPPORT US

Every member of YSAR is a volunteer, and the only way we can continue to operate is with your help and support.  No matter how small, personal donations help to keep the team running.
