Every year, Dunedin Marine Search and Rescue requires approximately $30,000 to ensure we can continue to provide life saving services in the Otago marine environment.
All money raised goes towards:
Volunteer training – both in house and from external training suppliers including Helicopter Underwater Escape Training, Pre Hospital Emergency Care first aid, winch training, Coordinated Incident Management training
Specialised rescue and personal protective equipment including rescue harnesses, wet suits, personal locator beacons, safety helmets, swim fins, radio communications etc.
Volunteer out of pocket expenses which include fuel vouchers for use of personal vehicles, food expenses
Administration costs including post box fee, printing, stationary, and computer fees, accounting/auditor fees etc.
Dunedin Marine SAR relies on the generosity of individuals and businesses to fund our essential services. We need your help to continue to provide this vital life saving service in and around Otago.
We are constantly asking for donations and looking for corporate sponsorship. Please donate via our Give a Little page today.
