Town Hall Event: Opening of VRA Rescue NSW Manilla Squad

10 February @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm AEDT

To increase emergency response capability for the town of Manilla and surrounds, VRA Rescue NSW is opening a new rescue squad and inviting the residents of Manilla to attend a Town Hall event.

VRA Rescue NSW Commissioner, Brenton Charlton will share the vision of the organisation, capabilities, intent and plan for the new squad, the value of volunteering, and the benefits this new squad will bring to the community. The Town Hall will feature information sessions from qualified operators from squads across the state and an opportunity to ask questions and meet the team.

“We Are Rescue! That’s our tagline and that’s who we are. We’re really looking forward to providing this crucial service, but you know, what’s equally important is how we work alongside all the emergency service agencies in the area. We’re talking about NSW Police, NSW SES, NSW RFS, Fire and Rescue NSW, and NSW Ambulance. If you’re a member of another agency or a member of the community and you are interested in rescue, come on down.

Learn about VRA Rescue NSW capabilities, fleet, and rescue equipment including:

  • General Land Rescue
  • Road Crash Rescue
  • Search and Rescue (including land search)
  • Vertical Rescue and Cave Rescue
  • Breathing Apparatus and Confined Space Rescue
  • Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS)
  • VRA Rescue NSW Search Dog Squad, and
  • Non-field and administrative roles

“We’d be absolutely delighted to have you join our team. Think about it – you could be a key part of a diverse and dynamic group, bringing together members of the community and various uniforms for one purpose – that’s what makes us strong.

Together, we aim to provide a world-class rescue service for Manilla and its surrounding areas. Your contribution could really make a significant difference. It’s an opportunity to be part of something special, to work alongside dedicated individuals, and to make a positive impact in our community.

Everyone is welcome to attend the Town Hall to learn more about VRA Rescue NSW. Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer with VRA Rescue NSW is strongly encouraged to come along to learn more, ask questions and sign up.
