The TECT Rescue Helicopter service was founded in 2000 and has touched the lives of thousands of patients.

The TECT Rescue Helicopter provides 24-hour emergency service, 365 days a year. Engaged when time is critical or accessibility is compromised, our search and rescue helicopters serve the central North Island, providing an essential emergency service in your community.

Dispatched through the 111-call system, our rapid response rescue helicopters bring life-saving equipment, rescue personnel, with full-time Flight Paramedic workforce, and experienced Intensive Care Paramedics (ICP) directly to the patient.

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.

About us

Philips Search and Rescue Trust was founded in 1985, available through the emergency 111 call system, our rapid response rescue helicopters bring life-saving equipment, rescue personnel and trauma-trained medics directly to the patient.

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.
