TweetFacebookThe Rescue Helicopter has had an informal contract with the wider community to provideaeromedical retrieval services. The cost is met through a contract with the NSW Governmentand the Ambulance Service of NSW, which provides just over 50 per cent of operating costs.

The remainder comes from the community through voluntary contributions, sponsorships,events, bequests, cash housie and donations.

It means that no one who is assisted by the Rescue Helicopter is required to pay for thatservice. It also means the helicopters, pilots, crew, doctors and paramedics are available 24hours day when and where they are needed within the region.

Since its beginnings as a weekend beach patrol, community support has been provided inmany different ways including the sponsorship of Westpac, which is now Australia’slongest ever corporate sponsorship arrangement.

Today the Service works as part of the State’s emergency care chain and has fourhelicopters that operate 24 hours a day every day of the year from two bases located at

Broadmeadow and in Tamworth. The team includes experienced pilots, crew, doctors andparamedics who are well supported on the ground by skilled engineers, administration andmarketing professionals.

In 2017 the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service will become one of only two aeromedicalproviders in NSW assisting the people of northern NSW. This requires the Service to investin larger aircraft, added levels of training and operations.
