The NSW Volunteer Rescue Association is made up of specialist rescue operators working for their communities in over 50 locations across New South Wales.

Our members are primary responders for Road Crash Rescue, General Land Rescue, Vertical Rescue and just about any type of specialist rescue encountered by Emergency Service personnel. The VRA also includes Aerial Patrol, Communications, Cave Rescue, Ski Patrols and Community First Aid teams.

Members, and their Rescue Squads, are accredited by the Minister for Emergency Services through the State Rescue Board as rescue operators in their designated field. From the unforgiving highways and roads that make up the vital circulatory system of New South Wales through to the rugged forests and alpine areas of this great state our small army of unpaid professionals are ready to respond at a moments notice, ready to lend a “helping hand, anywhere, anytime.”

WADALBA

A driver has been transported to hospital following a single vehicle accident along Johns Rd at Wadalba last night. Rescue crews and emergency services were called to the location just after 11:30pm last night, to find the vehicle had left the roadway and collided with a tree.

The driver of the vehicle was trapped for a short while before rescue crews were able to extricate the patient with assistance from Fire and Rescue NSW, Warnervale Rural Fire Brigade, and NSW Ambulance paramedics. 

They were then transported to the John Hunter hospital in stable condition.
