Philips Search & Rescue Trust (PSRT) is the charity responsible for fundraising and promotion of the North Island’s largest pool of community rescue helicopters. PSRT aims to provide the highest standard of air ambulance, and search and rescue services. We believe that through enduring relationships with the communities in which we operate, together we can save lives.

Use of funds
Whilst some of our annual operating costs are covered by way of our government contracts, we rely heavily on the generosity of sponsors and the community to fund the shortfall that allows us to be rescue ready 24/7, 365 days of the year.
