Eagle Australasia Proudly Supporting Local Community

22 Jul 2017

Eagle Australasia has been a proud sponsor of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service for the past 5 years.

Each year the community’s own Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service is on standby 24 hours a day to help save lives across the Mid North Coast and beyond.  Operating out of three bases in Lismore, Tamworth and Newcastle and with the addition of a new AW139 fleet, the service covers a massive 132,000sq km area from the Queensland border to the Hawkesbury, making it one of the leading aeromedical services in Australia.

With an annual budget of about $40 million dollars, patients are not charged for this critical and life-saving service.  This is because the local community, together with the NSW Government and corporate sponsors such as Eagle Australasia, provide the funds to ensure the rescue helicopters are there when and where they are needed.  About $12million is raised annually through sponsorships, volunteering, support activities and events, and partnerships with the community.  Check out their website to find out more about how you can get involved and support this vital service.

Eagle Australasia are proud to help the local community via their continued support of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.
