The Australasian Road Rescue Organisation (ARRO) is the peak body in Australasia for the development and exchange of information, knowledge and skills in road rescue. Its membership is drawn from the individuals and organisations in the emergency services that assist people at road crashes everyday such as Fire Services, State Emergency Services and Ambulance Services.
ARRO was established as the Australian National Road Accident Rescue Association (ANRARA) in 1996. ANRARA changed its name to ARRO in 2003 to better reflect its position on the World Rescue Organisation. ARRO represents Australasia on the council.
ARRO is a membership based Association, incorporated in Victoria, and relies on the support of members to exist. Members can be individuals, emergency service organisations, as well as corporates with an interest in the rescue industry. ARRO operates as a non-profit organisation under the Associations Incorporation Act (Vic) 1981 and has Rules of Association.

Teams often have questions about participation in the rescue challenge and about improving on road service delivery. The ARRO Technical Committee has developed these questions and answers to assist rescue teams in identifying best practice in both the challenge and day to day rescue on the road.
As previously announced, ARRO will once again be hosting the 2016 Australasian Rescue Challenge itself. The Challenge will return to the 2014 venue of Lardner Park, east of Melbourne in Victoria.
Registration are now open and there has already been significant interest, so to ensure you secure your team's entry in the Challenge, do not delay your registration. For more information about the Challenge, its program and accommodation venues, please click on this arrow.
