The Voluntary Rescue Service (Vapepa) is a network of  over 50 organisations whose emergency teams support the authorities when accidents or other crises occur. In most cases, Vapepa is called in to search for a missing person, but volunteers are also needed to provide emotional support, control traffic, or assist with evacuations. Our helpers operate on the ground, in water areas, or up in the air. 

The Vapepa organisations work together so that the competencies of each organisation can be utilised in an emergency to aid the person in need. During an emergency, Vapepa leads its respective operations.
