Northern NSW : Rescue Spring 2017
From July through to September the Rescue Helicopter, in partnership with NSW Ambulance, officially opened the new Belmont, Lismore and Tamworth bases. While these events mark a significant step in the organisation’s direction and its ability to deliver world- class aeromedical and rescue services across Northern NSW, they also served to acknowledge the tremendous partnership we are privileged to have with our community. An important element to our future, and our ability to successfully deliver upon a 10 year contract with the NSW Government, is the special and valued relationship we have with our community. For more than four decades this relationship has enabled us to continue operations and more importantly, ensure that no one has ever had to pay to be assisted. There are literally tens of thousands of people and community groups that give, volunteer, bequeath and fundraise for this organisation. We are also very fortunate to have hundreds of businesses that generously give. Of course, there is the long-term partnership with our friends at Westpac and our Logo Rights partners that form the backbone of corporate partnerships, but there are also many more people that collectively add invaluable support to the outcomes of the Rescue Helicopter. There are far too many to mention in this column, or even a year’s supply of Rescue magazines. They make-up a part of our community that are among our most generous supporters. They donate their skills, resources, products and services. They also attend events, donate prizes, give from their pay, buy auction items and are the first to say, ‘can we help’ and for the most part they do it without the expectation of thanks. Every dollar donated really does make a difference. For our part, we are humbled and grateful for this support and we never under estimate the power of our community who help keep us flying as a free community service. Thank you for your ongoing support. Richard Jones OAM CEO The Service is proud to recognise and acknowledge the dedication and commitment of two of its long-term employees. Finance Assistant Karen Cooper (Hunter) and Aircrewman Michael Kerry (Lismore) each recently marked 25 years of working with the Rescue Helicopter. Congratulations and thank you for your incredible service. The business of community Combined half century Mick Kerry Karen Cooper 2 Rescue Magazine SPRING 2017
