Become a member of Hellenic Rescue Team

Become a member in HRT and help us to save even more lives!

The Hellenic Rescue Team invites all those who want to work as voluntary rescuers to join its community and for each person to offer whatever they can. Participation in the Basic Training School, which takes place every October in Thessaloniki as well as throughout the year in most of the Team’s branches all over Greece, is an essential prerequisite.

The training in Thessaloniki lasts for two-and-a-half months, during which the candidate rescuer acquires basic knowledge of rescue work in all natural environments: mountain, water, and urban and non-urban areas during mass disasters. The programme begins with a month of free training, self-protection and emergency services, which can be taken by everyone. All those who wish to become members of the Hellenic Rescue Team can continue with the Basic Training School.

The Basic Training School includes both theoretical and practical classes, so that the trainee can receive as complete and all-round knowledge as possible and come into contact with nature, where he or she will be called upon to work in the future.

If you wish to volunteer with us then call 2310310649 (Monday to Friday, 09.00 – 17.00), send an e-mail or contact your nearest division of the Hellenic Rescue Team.
