Northern NSW : Autumn 2013
Page 2 Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service - Rescue Spring 2012 No one has ever paid to be assisted by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. That is because our community and the NSW Government through NSW Health and the Ambulance Service of NSW provide the funds that ensure rescue helicopters are there when and where they are needed. Established in 1975 as a volunteer part time beach patrol in the Newcastle area, the Service now includes four helicopters operating across the Hunter, New England – North West, Central Coast and Mid North Coast regions. The Service operates 24 hours a day and undertakes about 1400 missions each year. Thank you for your support Rescue is produced for the community four times a year. It includes information about the activities and events associated with the Service, its sponsors, its volunteers, those who contribute through donations and the wider community. Every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this publication is correct at the time of publication. Contributions are welcome and can be made by contacting the Service on 1800 155 155.
