If you were lost in the wilderness at night, maybe injured, probably freezing and very frightened, you’d want to know that the people looking for you had the best chance they could of finding you and bringing you home safely.
What many people don’t realise is Westpac Rescue Helicopters are a not-for-profit organisation. We’re sponsored by Westpac and helped by the Tasmanian Government, but that support comes with the expectation that we raise the funds for specialist equipment and ongoing training from sponsorship and the Tasmanian community.
That’s you. The people we serve.
Here at Westpac Rescue Helicopters in Tassie we are aiming to raise $100,000 for new night-vision technology. This will be a significant upgrade to the equipment we use currently, and will significantly increase our ability to locate and rescue people lost after dark.
In a rescue situation, every hour—every minute—counts, and can mean the difference between a successful rescue or not.
Please get behind the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Appeal today, and help us ensure we’re as well-equipped as we can be, and help more Tasmanians get home safely. Donate now!
