Celebrating 30 years of serving the Byron Community 1977-2007
This Volunteer Rescue organization proudly serves the residents and visitors of the Byron Shire in general land rescue. The Byron shire covers and area from Wooyong in the north to Newrybar in the south, out to Nashua in the west and up in the hills behind Mullumbimby. This primary response organisation, assists in the release of people trapped in motor vehicles and trucks, assists in rural, industrial and domestic accidents and vertical rescue. We don't forget the animals either, whether they be four legged or those that fly, we rescue them all. We in fact assist the Police on any task they request, eg, body recovery, crime scene lighting and crime scene searches.
We don't normally get involved in storm and tempest and flood evacuation, however, we do assist the SES in these matters when requested.
Our mission is to provide the very best rescue service that is available to those in desperate circumstances, generally through no fault of their own. We baulk at nothing, this service is provided 7 days a week 24 hours a day, raining or fine. we have been on scene for up to 6 hours doing what we are trained for, with no regard to our own circumstances whether they are family or work, We work hard at fund raising as not much funding comes from governments, we hold golf days, bowls days, raffles and there are some very generous donees in the shire. If your organization would like to be a sponsor, we have numerous areas where advertising could be located to suit your needs.
