Please help your rescue crew save more lives

Accident or emergency situations can happen anywhere, anytime. Night or day. Road, mountain, rural or remote. It’s what happens next that matters.

The sooner treatment begins, the greater the chance of patient recovery. When the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter is tasked to a life-saving emergency rescue via the emergency 111 call system, it is the best and often the only option, bringing life-saving equipment and trauma-trained Critical Care Flight Paramedics directly to the patient.

Founded in 1987 and our longest-serving free emergency rescue service, the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter serves the Waikato, Coromandel and our rural King Country, bringing life-saving equipment and trauma-trained Critical Care Flight Paramedics directly to the patient.

We cannot do what we do without the support of our community. We rely on the kindness of people like you to save lives every day.
