INTRODUCING OUR 2019 BENEFICIARIES
WESTPAC RESCUE HELICOPTER SERVICE
The Community's Own Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service was established in 1975 as a weekend beach patrol and through community support and fundraising it became a critical life saving service that operates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week from four bases in Belmont, Broadmeadow, Tamworth and Lismore. \
Today it delivers aeromedical search, rescue and inter-hospital transfers to care for communities throughout Northern NSW and is approaching 1,500 missions per year, with a Doctor and Paramedic on board every flight. No one has ever had to pay to be assisted by the Service.
