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.
Message from the President
As ARRO grows from strength to strength so does the faith and confidence that our supporters and partners place in us to address the needs of industry, agencies and of course individuals aligned to the road crash rescue and patient care fraternities. At the 2016 annual general meeting we presented the concept of ARRO being the ‘learning hub’ of all things road crash rescue related and this approach is encompassed in our everyday directions but none more so than via our annual extrication and trauma challenges, the associated learning symposium and this year at ARC17 we will introduce three hands on practical workshops where teams will learn the latest techniques, tool advancements and operational capabilities via industry and ARRO subject matter experts. We are extremely proud of how ARRO has grown over the years to meet the needs of our membership both at agency and individual levels and to illustrate our strategic growth, I am proud to introduce Resqtec into our elite Gold Sponsor category having just signed up for a three-year partnership with ARRO. Resqtec now joins our long-term sponsors Chubb and Holmatro as Gold Sponsors with all three companies offering financial and ‘in-kind’ support with all sharing the common cause of supporting the Australasian road crash rescue environment. I would encourage all members and those new to ARRO to support our sponsors for without their help ARRO would not be the organisation we are today. Click on their links at the side of this page and go directly to their respective websites. Can I also encourage all those attending ARC17 at Hamilton, New Zealand in July of this year to visit their trade displays, view their product range and importantly engage with them. ARRO thanks Resqtec, Chubb and Holmatro for supporting us and our cause.
