I'm fundraising for life and the support of it.
I am very proud that by entering the 2021 Drover's Run Outback Adventure I am making a very significant contribution to the important lifesaving work of the Rescue Helicopter Service on call to our community 24/7, 365 days a year.
The 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.
