The Off Road Rescue Unit

The mission of the Off-Road Rescue Unit ( ORRU ) is to provide competent, efficient voluntary emergency Search and Rescue services dedicated to saving human life, as well as being able to operate in rough and difficult terrain conditions, alongside other Search and Rescue services in times of natural or man-made disasters or emergencies.

The Unit works closely with local, regional and national Emergency Management Services, Disaster Management, the South African Air Force, Civil Aviation (Aeronautical Rescue Coordination Centre), South African Police Service, K9 Search and Rescue Association, the Mountain Club of South Africa Search and Rescue, National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI), Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre(MRCC) and other official and civilian volunteer organisations.

The Unit provides wilderness and urban search and rescue services, transport, logistical support and radio communications, in rough terrain and urban areas in times of need including civil, national or international emergencies.

Each year, the Unit receives more than fifty calls for assistance and in more than half of these instances, the Unit’s comprehensive emergency-assistance capabilities are required with members being mobilised and deployed.
