Northern NSW : Summer 2017
Good neighbours They may be few in number but students at Pelican Flat Public School, located near the Service’s new Belmont base, have sent a big warm welcome to their soon-to-be neighbour. The school’s 46 K-Yr 6 students raised $502 by collecting spare five cent coins for the Rescue Helicopter, marking their biggest charity donation to date. During a thank you visit the Service’s Community Liaison Officer Barry Walton was also presented with some special drawings. He said the school’s big effort was greatly appreciated and that the Service was looking forward to being part of such a friendly neighbourhood. Young learners It’s good to know you’re never too young to learn about the great work carried out by the Rescue Helicopter. As part of National Emergency Preparedness Week, Community Liaison Officer Barry Walton was invited to give an awareness talk on 19 October to young children attending long day care at the Cameron Park Early Learning Centre. Some of the 30 youngsters proudly showed off their drawing skills and were given some stickers and tattoos along with a copy of Mildred Makes a Difference. The Centre showed its support by donating $100 to the Rescue Helicopter. Work on the Service’s new $5.5 million aeromedical base at Lake Macquarie Airport is expected to be completed by March. Last October the State Government announced $2.3 million towards funding the base which will house aircraft hanger faciltities, day maintenance and training services along with accommodation for pilots, crews, doctors, nurses and ambulance staff. Planning Minister Rob Stokes said the new key emergency base at Belmont was vital in supporting the Rescue Helicopter to effectively service the state’s entire northern region.
