Working in partnership with New Zealand emergency and rescue services, we are an associate member of LandSAR New Zealand and a member of the New Zealand Search and Rescue (NZSAR) Consultative Committee.
We receive funding and provide Search and Rescue services under a joint service level agreement with New Zealand SAR Council, New Zealand Police and Maritime New Zealand. (RCCNZ)
New Zealand Police
New Zealand Police is the agency responsible for land searches in New Zealand, one of only two agencies responsible for initiating searches in New Zealand.
Land Search & Rescue
Land Search and Rescue (LandSAR) is a national volunteer organisation which provides search and rescue assistance to the lost, missing and injured across New Zealand.
National Emergency Management Agency
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) is the Government lead for emergency management. We help build a safe and resilient Aotearoa New Zealand by empowering communities before, during and after emergencies.
Coastguard New Zealand
Coastguard volunteers spend many hundreds of thousands of hours on search and rescue missions, radio operations, training or maintenance work each year.
They’re highly trained professional volunteers, so you can be safe in the knowledge that when you call Coastguard for help, you’ll be in expert hands.
New Zealand Search & Rescue
The New Zealand Search and Rescue (NZSAR) Council has a mandate from the NZ Government to provide strategic leadership to the New Zealand Search and Rescue Sector.
NZSAR work to improve the overall coordination, cohesion, capability and leadership of search and rescue by working alongside the key organisations and individuals providing search and rescue services throughout New Zealand.
Maritime New Zealand
The Rescue Coordination Centre New Zealand (RCCNZ), as one of two coordinating authorities responsible for initiating searches in New Zealand, is the agency responsible for coordinating all major maritime and aviation search and rescue missions within New Zealand’s search and rescue region and land-based missions arising from someone activating a distress beacon.

Surf Life Saving New Zealand is the leading beach and coastal safety, drowning prevention and rescue authority in Aotearoa. We are truly unique, delivering proactive lifeguarding and essential emergency rescue services, a range of public education beach safety programs, member education, training and development, as well as a highly respected sport.
