Welcome to New Zealand Search and Rescue

The New Zealand Search and Rescue (NZSAR) Council has a mandate from the NZ government to provide strategic leadership to the New Zealand Search and Rescue Sector.

We help improve the overall co-ordination, cohesion, capability and leadership of search and rescue by working alongside the key organisations and individuals providing search and rescue services throughout New Zealand.

SAR Expectations Research Report

NZSAR recently commissioned research into public expectations and perceptions of search and rescue in New Zealand. While we know how effective search and rescue operations are in saving lives and rescuing people, this research has explored the expectations that the public has of these services.
