From , 5:02 am on 5 June 2017

The workshop in Auckland for Pacific search and rescue personnel last week led to a plan for each of the member countries to improve their SAR capability.

The Pacific Search and Rescue Steering Committee developed a strategic plan during the workshop to run through to 2021.

Maritime New Zealand's Mike Hill told Don Wiseman this plan has four pillars to improve SAR response - namely governance, co-ordination, effective operational response and prevention.
