The Emergency Response and Rescue Corps (ERRC) is a voluntary, charitable and not for profit organization based in Gozo, Malta. It was created with the aim of preventing and alleviating human suffering, improving the situation of the most vulnerable people with absolute impartiality and without any discrimination as to gender, nationality, religion, race, class, religious or political beliefs. Its purpose is to protect and preserve human life and to ensure respect for the human being. It provides assistance to government established departments (as per statute) in providing specialised training to personnel and required assistance in emergency situations. Furthermore, ERRC offers water rescue service at popular beaches around Gozo and Comino during the summer months, ambulance services and first aid posts during public events. ERRC is a volunteer-led humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are.
Youths are an integral part of our organisation. Over 80 percent our volunteers are youths. Children as young as 7 years old form part of our Youth Section where they benefit from socializing with other children learn basic first aid as well as general health and safety and most importantly, have lots of fun while taking part in various activities. Some of the activities we organise team ,work include: camping, BBQs, night games, hikes, abseiling, outings to Malta and Comino and much more. Youths are introduced to community service, integration and other social issues and motivated to do volunteer work.
