YSAR Trust receives generous support from Navico Group for Youth Search and Rescue Training Centre

YSAR Trust is thrilled to announce the recent partnership with Navico Group, a leading provider of marine electronics, to upgrade their battery system at the Youth Search and Rescue Training Centre in the Kaimai Ranges.
Previously, YSAR has had to rely on donated lead acid batteries, which have proven to be unreliable and difficult to manage with multiple users at the training facility. However, with Navico Group’s generosity, they were able to provide a full upgrade to the battery systems with a Mastervolt Lithium Ion set.
The Mastervolt MLI Ultra batteries were selected because of their ability to run heavy loads for extended periods at the training facility. Navico Group provided the batteries at a heavily discounted price, ensuring a reliable and sustainable system for YSAR’s operations. As a result of this upgrade, YSAR now only has to run their generator for two hours per weekend, compared to the previous requirement of running the generator for 12 hours or more.
Steve Campbell, CEO of YSAR Trust, expressed his gratitude towards Navico Group, “We are tremendously grateful for their generosity and willingness to support a community NFP charity training the future generations of Search and Rescue and Emergency Management practitioners. They show an exemplar of an organisation proactively displaying a high level of social responsibility, giving back to the community.”
YSAR is a non-profit charity organisation that aims to train the future workforce capability in Search and Rescue and Emergency Management. With branches in Tauranga, Waikato Central, Thames Coromandel, Auckland and Wellington, YSAR is scaling to other centers in New Zealand. YSAR is a member of New Zealand Search and Rescue and relies heavily on the generosity of funders, sponsors, and corporate partners to operate and train the next generation of SAR and EM responders.
