Whangarei Lions

Through a partnership and support of Whangarei Lions, Northland Search and Rescue over the last few years have raised it’s profile & received support from the Whangarei Lions Club. One of Whangarei Lions Big Fundraising events is to host a safe public display Fireworks event every November.


“Fonterra, Supporting Northlanders”

The Northland Fonterra management team decided to support Northland Search and Rescue group in the form of SIX new Icom F50v VHF waterproof portable radios complete with waterproof speaker microphones. These radios have already proven themselves in the short time with deployment on two operations in extreme conditions. The first was providing safety and an emergency response if required in very wet & cold conditions for the cape Brett challenge. More recently, the radios were deployed on a SAR callout for a missing pig hunter in the Karatu area in the Bay of Islands.
