Good LandSAR Publicity

This morning’s Dominion Post has some fab publicity for New Zealand’s LandSAR organisation, derived from a couple of recent high profile incidents in the Tararua and Rimutaka Ranges in the lower North Island.

The first article [1] profiles a couple of people who volunteer their time and expertise to work with Police who usually coordinate their types of searches. The second article [2] describes some of the mechanisms and processes of a systematic LandSAR operation in New Zealand, and a summarised history of how it came to be this way.

Both make worthwhile reading.
