Air Rescue Trust´s February Campaign


We need your help today


It has been a really busy time, the 7.8 earthquake put unprecedented demand on the service due to the isolation of the affected areas and it has been followed by the busiest holiday period on record. When the Westpac Rescue Helicopter crew receive an emergency call we are in the air within 10 minutes during the day and 20 minutes at night.


Early intervention saves lives and every minute counts.

 “Please help us to save lives, it could be your mother, father, wife, husband, son or daughter. You cannot put a cost on a life, but here at Air Rescue we have to.”

We simply could not operate the service without you.

We thank you most sincerely, and more importantly, the people in the affected areas thank you for your support during this uncertain time.
