Search and Rescue
Whenever LandSAR New Zealand is activated to assist NZ Police with a search operation, members of AREC are deployed to set up and operate the communications systems and incident management computer systems at the incident control point in the field. They communicate between search parties a the incident management team, maintain a communications log and keep track of the location of the search teams using SARTrack equipment to record the GPS coordinates of each of the team radios.
