Northern NSW : Summer 2012-2013
Farm watch Fuelling the service An initiative between NSW Farmers and the Rescue Helicopter hopes to improve communication during 000 calls in rural and remote areas. The Farm Watch card has been designed to provide prompts that help the caller clearly communicate information that can help emergency services when responding to an incident or accident. The card also provides valuable information to assist emergency services and helicopter crews when responding to a primary response or rescue. Regional Manager NSW Farmers, Stuart Murdoch, said the launch of the program was timed when harvest normally brought an increase in farm activity throughout regional NSW. ‘NSW Farmers, in their involvement with the Rescue Helicopter, understand that the vast distances in rural NSW means access to fast emergency treatment is of critical importance,’ he said. With the Service consuming over half a million litres of aviation fuel each year, the support of Caltex ensures we are able to operate 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. Long term supporter and logo rights sponsor Caltex recently renewed its sponsorship agreement with the Service. Its support is crucial to our daily operation as Caltex provides us with significant discounts on aviation fuel at both the Broadmeadow and Tamworth bases. Caltex representatives Mahi Singh, Rob Gibson and Tony Hall recently visited the Broadmeadow base to finalise the agreement and tour the facilities.
