The Australasian peak body for road rescue


ARRO produces a range of technical information bulletins and also conducts an annual skills challenge to advance understanding of the science of extrication. In the challenge representatives from most agencies involved in road rescue response in Australia, New Zealand and Australasia come together to learn, exchange ideas and participate in a rescue challenge in the spirit of friendship.

To access this information (other than the Hall of Fame) you need to be a registered member of ARRO.
