SERA known as Scottish Emergency Rescue Association

Since 2007 the Scottish Emergency Rescue Association has been the project operations team delivering over 40 fully equipped Fire Engines and 10 Ambulances to countries such as Moldova, Serbia, Romania & Burundi.
In addition we provide training to firefighters and paramedics in the use of the equipment and now have a full education programme working with schools, colleges, orphanages and homes for the elderly in each host country delivering a road and fire safety programme.

Founded 2017

  • Mission statement

    In addition to the donation of equipment, SERA have trained hundreds of local firefighters and paramedics in each of the host countries in order that they can safely use and maintain the equipment and vehicles provided.
    SERA have developed an educational programme alongside the appliance, equipment and training programme where we work in schools and colleges in each country taking the message of home fire safety and road safety to the young people of each country to prevent tragic events before they happen.
    A range of strategic objectives have been established that underpin SERA’s vision and provide the necessary framework that will enable its realisation.
    It is logical that the strategic objectives take account not only of the aspirations of the organisation itself, but also how it can best partner, support, facilitate and educate where possible to prevent loss of life and injury.
    The SERA vision is therefore to reduce the number of deaths, injuries and loss caused through fire, road or natural occurrence by the support of emergency services and education establishments through a range of activities and programmes, all of which serve the needs of the rescue community and wider community in which it operates.
