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 โ€œhelping hand, anywhere, anytime.โ€

In one moment, everything can change!

So often we see accidents like these but when we leave an incident we rarely find out how much this has impacted that persons life.

Looks like we will be topping of this busy day with some afternoon storms! 
With more cars on the road at this time of year please slow down and drive to the conditions.

The storm is passing through Windsor at the moment heading your way, take care hope you’re not kept to busy

As we count down the last final hours of a very arduous and challenging 2020, we would like to extend our deepest thanks to all of our tireless volunteers of Central Coast Rescue. They have met every single challenge head-on, with steadfast dedication and professionalism.

From bushfires, to floods, to challenging rescues, and the Covid pandemic. We cannot be more proud of our small group of unpaid professionals.

We would like to extend our well wishes to the wider Central Coast emergency service community, from paramedics to police, firefighters to surf life savers, we wish you all the best for 2021 and to those working the night shift tonight, Good Luck!

See you all next year!

On this day 31yrs ago, the Central Coast Rescue Squad was called upon to assist our sister emergency services in the Newcastle Earthquake.
Our operators spent many hours and days helping save lives in the rubble that scattered Newcastle and for those unfortunate, assisting in retrieval for those familyโ€™s loved ones.
To all of those servicemen and woman we thankyou for your hard work helping the community of Newcastle.

With the new role out of the PUBLIC ACCESS DEFIBRILLATOR PROGRAM, emergency services such as ourselves are able to assist NSW Ambulance with getting hands on chest sooner for patients suffering cardiac arrest.

WARNERVALE 

Just before 9am this morning, rescue crews and volunteer firefighters from Wadalba Rural Fire Brigade and Warnervale Rural Fire Brigade were called to a property at Warnervale to assist with a horse that was stuck in a dam. 

Young BJ had been stuck in the dam overnight and was exhausted after trying to free himself from the dam. Crews managed to use large animal rescue slings to assist hauling him out of the water and mud to safety. 

A local vet was on scene to give him a check over after his ordeal.

I hope BJ is ok. Poor thing. Thankyou to the Rescuers for their hard work. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

I have had the exact same thing happen to a horse in the past, and know all the effort and knowledge combined that would’ve been responsible for this good outcome! Well done in such a stressful situation.

Well done, it’s good to hear a story with a happy ending๐Ÿค—

Wonderful work. I wish every species of animal was cared for in this way. A horse is a cow is a dog is a pig is a cat is a chicken.

To our Wadalba Rural Fire Brigade community.

It is with great regret that we have to cancel the remaining Santa runs due to restrictions introduced with the escalating COVID 19 crisis on the Northern Beaches.

Our members are devastated we are unable to bring Santa to the local area and see all those smiling children.

Please stay safe and have a wonderful Christmas. If anything changes we will put a post up. We thank all community members who we got to see over the runs we got to do. We enjoyed seeing all the smiles on faces and hope we can see them again.
