These are the wonderful folks who will come to your rescue if you have an accident while canoeing on the Whanganui River and need to set off the PLB (personal locator beacon) we provide. Thanks so much to the search and rescue team for all your great work!

Crew on an NH90 helicopter recently conducted training with a group of Land Search & Rescue New Zealand (LandSAR) volunteers and several LandSAR Search Dogs at Brooks Farm in Owhango.

During a search and rescue operation, LandSAR volunteers could be winched into or out of remote locations by crew on our NH90 helicopters, operated by No. 3 Squadron.

A key output of our NH90 helicopters and crew is National Contingency (NATCON) where they are placed on short notice to move, ready to react to any sort of domestic crisis or emergency event, including search and rescue operations.
