They are the largest provider of road rescue in the state, they assist Victoria Police in search and rescue operations, and they play an important support role during major bushfires.

The committed and dedicated volunteers have saved the lives and property of countless Victorians, providing these services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
