The Helicopter Rescue and Response Association was founded in Austin Texas on August 6th, 2010 as a result of the annual ad hoc Helicopter Rescue Summit held in conjunction with Helicopter Association International’s Heli-Expo. The fruition of this association is the result of a common desire shared by those actively involved with helicopter rescue operations towards creating an information sharing network within the community.

The HRRA is dedicated to the safety of air crew, rescue and response personnel and survivors through education, training, standardization and information sharing. Using technology and equipment improvements to increase efficiency/effectiveness and improve safety.
