YSAR Featured Articles in NZSAR Link Issue 67

YSAR has been prominently featured in the latest issue of NZSAR Link, Issue 67, released in June 2024. This recognition highlights our continued commitment to training and preparing the next generation of search and rescue responders.

YSAR Satellite Branches

YSAR’s innovative hybrid training model for rural areas has been showcased. The Thames Coromandel branch exemplifies how we adapt to the unique challenges of rural regions, ensuring that young people from diverse locations can participate in our comprehensive SAR training programs. This model not only maximizes volunteer instructor time but also leverages local Land Search and Rescue groups for hands-on skills training. The collaboration with local Coastguard units and the shared resources with YSAR Waikato are testaments to our commitment to providing high-quality training despite geographical challenges.
