6th December 2015 marked the 40th Anniversary of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.
Rescuing people from adverse situations is what we do best. It is our mission to deliver immediate medical care and transport a patient in the quickest possible time which can be the difference between life and death.
Since 1975 the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service has grown from a part-time voluntary summer beach patrol to world-class aeromedical search and rescue operation. This has been possible with the assistance from Westpac Bank as our naming rights sponsor, our corporate partners, community donations and of course our incredible volunteer support groups.
