In late 2017 Bush Search and Rescue members acquired a first round of twenty high-vis durable rain shell jackets for searching.
BSAR hi-vis softshell jackets were first issued to members in 2013. They complement the BSAR hi-vis safety shirt, beanie and cap.
These jackets were provided through the funding support of the JJ Gardiner Trust, via the Alpine Search and Rescue Victoria club, the Victorian Department of Justice, and Bushwalking Victoria. BSAR is very grateful for the generous support that enabled its members to be so equipped.
The jackets are durable, showerproof and provide good insulation. They are also suitable for use in alpine environments.
Bush Search and Rescue members are being provided with safety shirts for use on searches.
These shirts are highly visible and stay warm if they get wet.
