Government, business and civil society - working together to save lives


SAMRO is a Level 1 Member of the World Rescue Organization **

SAMRO is an educational organization with a mission of "Prepare today's succeed at tomorrow's challenges". We also focus on the Post crash phase pillar workshops of Road safety for emergency s first responders.

SAMRO has identified one key element to improve the outcome of vehicle crashes. We focus our support on civilian drivers who stop and render aide, the occupants involved in the motor vehicle crash (MVC), and the rescuers who respond to their call for help.

We focus on public education & awareness for the general population. By supporting people how to identify why accidents happen and what they can do to prevent them will help SAMRO accomplish its mission by reducing the number of MVCs in the first place. However, SAMRO realizes that prevention will only go so far and training for rescuers is imperative to its success.

SAMRO, as a Non-Profit-Organization we plan to integrate corporate support into public service by subsidizing training costs with sponsorship and donations. SAMRO provides first responders with state of the art training information in new vehicle rescue theories and by standardizing the existing training techniques. Vehicle manufacturers improve on design, construction, and safety components every day.

Our mission is to bring this information to the first responder to increase proficiency and ultimately save lives.

Organization (WRO). The WRO is an international organization whose goal is to improve new vehicle hazard awareness to reduce secondary injuries to patients and rescuers.

Road Safety message for Easter holiday season 2018

Global perspective on road safety

In terms of Global status report on road safety 2015, total number of road traffic deaths has plateaued at 1.25 million per year, with the highest road traffic fatality rates in low-income countries. While there has been progress towards improving road safety legislation and in making vehicles safer, the report shows that the pace of change is too slow. Urgent action is needed to achieve the ambitious target for road safety reflected in the newly adopted 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: halving the global number of deaths and injuries from road traffic crashes by 2020. Most of the developing countries like South Africa have aligned their laws to international standard of best practice in dealing with risk factors on our roads.
