"Volunteer" with us
We are always looking to expand our volunteer capacity and capability. If you want to be a part of a life saving team you are at the right place. To be a member with us you need to live, work or play in the service area. It isn't easy, it isn't always fun and it takes a lot to volunteer with us.
