ARRO is the peak body in Australasia for the development of knowledge and skills in road crash rescue. ARRO represents Australasia at the World Rescue Organisation.
Through its involvement in road crash rescue challenges, and knowledge of the latest technologies, ARRO strives to improve the science and quality of rescue services provided to casualties and, therefore, a reduction in the severity of injuries. The ARRO executive has established a strategic plan to facilitate achieving these objectives.
ARRO is a membership based organisation that relies on the support of members (individuals and agencies) and sponsors to exist. Members can be individuals of emergency service organisations, as well as corporates with an interest in the rescue industry.
All members of the ARRO Executive and Technical Committees volunteer their time and diverse industry experience to assist in achieving the organisation’s goals. This is represented in both the membership and their management team, which is made up of representatives from different jurisdictions, agencies and levels of management within those organisations.
ARRO’s annual rescue challenges have set worldwide standards over recent years due to our excellent relationships and sponsorship from Chubb, Holmatro, ResQtec and PT Hydraulics and with support from our road safety partner, GM Holden.
