Northern NSW : Rescue Spring 2016
The Rescue Helicopter flew a John Hunter Hospital specialist burns medical team to Taree to treat a 28 year old man who had sustained serious injuries to both legs after throwing accelerant onto a fire. The Service airlifted the man to Royal North Shore Hospital’s burns unit where it was later reported he was in a stable condition. While the Rescue Helicopter always flies with its own doctor and paramedic on board, during this particular mission on 25 June, the John Hunter Hospital medical team organised its situation staff for the operation. Lismore base underway Construction on the Lismore base has provided the perfect catalyst for the $1.87 million plan to transform the Lismore Aviation Centre into a regional centre of aero-medical excellence. The Lismore Regional Airport upgrade includes major work on new runway lighting to help deal with fog issues, light-aircraft taxiways and a concrete helipad, better tourist information facilities and visitor amenities, more aircraft parking, new signage, road improvements, and better security and street-lighting. When completed, the Lismore headquarters will welcome the arrival of the new AgustaWestland AW139 aircraft in April next year. More than water under the bridge Veolia Bayswater designated the Rescue Helicopter as its charity of choice for the past five years through the company’s “Work Safe to Give” program. Veolia’s Business Systems Coordinator, Brian Dollisson, said the Service had an impact on everyone at Bayswater Power Station and that was a key reason it was chosen. ‘ The Service conducts rescues and recoveries across all the areas in which Veolia employees live and work,’ he said. Veolia Bayswater managed to reach all its safety targets and as a result a donation of $5,000 was given to the Service on 22 June. With its contract at the Bayswater Power Station treatment plant wrapping up at the end of June, it was the last opportunity for Veolia to donate to the Service. ‘ Over the past five years Veolia Bayswater has donated $23,000 towards the Rescue Helicopter,’ Mr Dollisson said.
