WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
The Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust provides air rescue services to the largest single geographical area in New Zealand – watching over the lives of over 600,000 people.
In a life and death situation where every minute counts, air rescue may be a patient’s only chance for survival.
Getting specialist care to the patient within one hour of the onset of illness or injury increases the chance of the patient making a full recovery by up to 80% - this is referred to as the ‘golden hour’.
The Air Rescue crews are on duty 24/7 and this year will respond to over 900 missions across our region (that’s an average of 3 missions each day)!
Air Rescue is only 50% funded by our government so the Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust must raise $7 million from the community every year to continue to provide a professional air rescue and air ambulance service.
We rely on businesses and individuals to support this air rescue service. We need you as much as you need us!
On behalf of the Air Rescue Crew and most importantly the patients we are called upon to rescue.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THIS CRITICAL SERVICE.
