Want to help us?

Want to support search and rescue in Tasmania? Why not make a donation to the Tasmanian Air Rescue Trust ... supporters of Tasmania's rescue helicopter service. Anyone, resident or visitor, may one day require its service through misfortune. The helicopter attends everything from motor vehicle accidents to search and rescue missions in our vast and rugged World Heritage Area. If you would like to make a contribution, please get in touch with your local Rotary Club, or email the Trust with your details. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Useful Links

There are a variety of sources of information on choosing and training a dog for search and rescue work. A number of methods and standards exist, with philosophical and practical differences especially between Europe and the U.S. when it comes to training and certifying dogs for search and rescue work. While we subscribe to no particular method and believe only in demonstrable results, you might find the following sites useful:

The National Association for Search & Rescue in the U.S. has a SAR Dog Section and a wealth of information, including an online bookstore. While not formally adopted for Australia, NASAR's standards for dogs and handlers form the basis for our team member selection and much of our ongoing training.
