Drover's Run

I'm fundraising to help save the lives of those that are unfortunate enough to need the service of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

Northern NSW Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service which changes outcomes in our community every day.

As I rise up each day in November I will complete 30 minutes of activity to recognise the important lifesaving work of the Rescue Helicopter Service  on call to our community 24/7, 365 days a year.

Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service is a flying intensive care unit.  The AW139 Helicopter has a Pilot with a minimum of 15 years flying experience; a Crewman, a SCAT trained Paramedic and a Doctor.  

Surgeries can be performed from the helicopter as well as blood transfusions.  It has the capacity to carry 2 patients or 2 Neonatal Cots. Not only does the Rescue Helicopter attend accidents it also transfers critical patients to larger hospitals for specialist treatment plus conducts Search and Rescue missions. 

The AW139s cost $1,000 per hour in fuel, $1,000 per hour to run the engine, $1,500 for the airframe and for $500 avionics, that’s a total of $4,000 per hour.

It costs about $40 million a year to keep the helicopters and crews ready to respond when needed.

Please give generously and share my page with your friends, family and colleagues. Thank you for rising up to support Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.
