Northern NSW : Rescue - Summer 2014
EC Throsby discovers value of Service EC Throsby has been a proud supporter of the Rescue Helicopter since 2000 and for the past five years has been matching the donations of its employees dollar for dollar, donating around $30,000. Just over a year ago, one of EC Throsby’s employees was involved in a serious motorbike accident. Jesse Jarvis was riding on a friend’s property just outside Singleton when he hit some loose gravel and careered into a barbed wire fence. Following the quick reaction of his friends contacting the emergency services, local paramedics made the decision to have Jesse airlifted to John Hunter Hospital. Initially diagnosed with multiple abrasions to his neck, chest and arm, a brain haemorrhage was then discovered requiring immediate surgery. Jesse was slowly brought out of a coma after 10 days. Jesse was moved to the Rankin Park rehabilitation centre then later moved to the Brain Injury unit at Bar Beach for further rehabilitation. Thankfully after a year of intensive rehab Jesse was able to resume work at EC Throsby, which held his position until he was well enough to return. ‘ I am so grateful that my employer is donating to such a great cause,’ said Jesse. EC Throsby Human Resource Manager, Alison Ross said the incident demonstrated the value of the organisation’s donations over more than a decade. ‘This is just one of the many reasons we have and will continue to support the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service,’ Allison said.
