Description of the groups activities and outcomes
Since 1975 thanks to the generosity and support from people right across Northern NSW, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service (Northern NSW Helicopter Rescue Service Ltd) has grown to become a vital 24-7 aeromedical operation.
The Service flies four AW139 Rescue Helicopters which operate from three integrated bases at Belmont, Lismore and Tamworth. Deep Level Maintenance, Engineering and Administration are located at a fourth base at Broadmeadow (Newcastle).
Servicing 1.5 million people across Northern NSW, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service is an integral link in the NSW emergency care chain. From flights for babies who are just minutes old, to people requiring medical treatment or trauma assistance, search and rescues, to winch extractions from tough terrain or inaccessible areas.
The Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service is thankful for the continued community support and proud to be here for those in need.
