State Road Crash Rescue Arrangements

The State Road Crash Rescue Arrangements Victoria 2023 (the Arrangements), are the current doctrine governing road crash rescue services in Victoria. The Arrangements in Victoria detail the provision of RCR services in Victoria.

The Arrangements are:

  • Issued as of 1 October 2023
  • Effective as of 1 December 2023
  • Due for review 30 June 2025

Victoria is served by a network of 135 road crash rescue principal providers from the CFA, FRV and VICSES. There are also two independent providers at Echuca and Shepparton.


The aim of the arrangements is to ensure an effective, sound and sustainable system of Road Crash Rescue (RCR) in Victoria that deliver the best possible care to, and safe extrication of, people involved in road crashes.

The State needs to take advantage of all of the elements of the RCR system and this version of the arrangements recognises and integrates the role that RCR Support Providers play in improving the delivery of RCR services across the state.

The arrangements provide clear direction on their role in an integrated multi-agency RCR service.
