SAVES is 45 this Year!

2 August 2017 is the 45th anniversary of the first call for SAVES, attended by our current president and honorary life member Dr David Rawlins.

Since then SAVES volunteers have attended thousands of incidents, alleviated suffering and saved many lives.  Please help us to continue this valuable work!


SAVES members give a great deal of their time and energy free of charge. In return SAVES provides a comprehensive set of emergency medical equipment and training.
