LandSAR Marlborough (part of LandSAR NZ, a national volunteer organisation) is an organisation of unpaid professionals that provide search and rescue services to lost, missing, and injured people across Marlborough, working alongside Police and the Rescue Coordination Centre. Our volunteers operate in suburban, urban, wilderness and rural areas including regional and forest parks, shorelines and caves. Our unpaid professionals offer their specialist search and rescue skills free to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Operations are not limited to mountain rescues of hunters and trampers, but often happen in urban environments. We often we search for the vulnerable, the Alzheimer’s patient, the lost children, or those that are just unfamiliar with the area and have chosen to enjoy our parks and reserves.​ We have over 3,400 trained search and rescue volunteers who are members of 60 local groups covering the length and breadth of New Zealand. We seek volunteers in a variety of roles, from administration members providing support to the incident management team through to field team members operating in the field. We also have specialist team members. We are always looking for new members, so if you want to be part of a dedicated team that is responsible for bring the lost back to their families contact us and become part of the team.
