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.”

Fun Fact Friday 

Commonly referred to as the Jaws of Life, our #Holmatro 3240 spreaders are one of the rescue squads most vital pieces of equipment. 

This hydraulic driven 18kg tool, has the ability to spread nearly 70cm, a maximum spreading force of 16 tons and a crushing force of over 6 tons! 

This tool is mainly used at road crash rescue incidents, for spreading off vehicle doors from the hinges, pushing the dash or steering wheel off the trapped patient, and many other applications. 

A very powerful piece of extrication equipment that is truly a life saver.

After more than a century on site for one of them. The Central Coast Poultry Club, the Wyong Lions, and the Central Coast Volunteer Rescue Squad have to vacate their premises. The Pigeon group has already left. The Lions Club holds a barbie at Bunnings each month and stores their equipment at the shed. Wyong Race Club CEO, David Jewell, said the groups have known for years that they would be leaving and unfortunately, that time had come. But one of the community groups is still fighting the eviction. The Poultry Club has to be out by February 7 because it refused to sign a temporary lease, while the rescue squad and Lions will move at the end of January. The Poultry Club is asking for legal documentation from the race club to establish that the race club is the sole owner of the land. A poultry club official said that after 113 years of continuous occupation and use of the site, the club was to go, with no compensation as previously promised by previous race committees, and no long-term site or facilities to move to.

What is the background to this

"Three community groups forced to leave - Central Coast Newspapers" www.centralcoastnews.net/2019/01/23/three-community-groups-forced-to-leave/

Who exactly is Albert Warner Pty Ltd? The name suggests they have links to the Warnervale area?

🤔

you want the community to fork out 250k! 🤣🤣

WOONGARRAH 

Just after 10:30 this morning, Central Coast Rescue crews were tasked to assist 13 year old Golden Retriever Gemma, who attempted the great escape and got her head stuck underneath a fence. 

It didn’t take crews long to remove the colorbond fence panels to release her. Thankfully she escaped her ordeal with no injuries.

I think Gemma may need the Golden Retriever Rescue diet.

It’s a Swiss Shepard not golden retriever.

Please take care on our roads in today’s wet conditions. 

We are expected to receive up to a possible 50mm of rainfall today across the Central Coast. 

We are urging motorists to drive to the conditions, slow down, turn your headlights on, and increase the gap between you and other vehicles on the road. 

We have already been responded to one incident this morning along Wyong Rd at Tuggerah, and are asking drivers to please take care when driving today.
