Emergency Management and Search & Rescue (EMSAR) is committed to preparing and supporting today’s emergency management and search & rescue professionals. We provide a continuum of quality accredited NZSAR, civil defence and emergency management training and education.
These programmes are developed in close consultation with Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management (MCDEM) and other emergency management agencies and are continually revised in order to best match operational needs.
They encompass foundation skills to work in the emergency management environment, Welfare, the Coordinated Incident Management System and Rope Rescue. The courses are delivered by subject experts. We value Experience, Credibility and the Maori ideal of Manaakitanga, caring for and mentoring our students.
