With the support of Mounties Group, emergency rescue service, CareFlight continues to save lives across our community and in honour of this partnership, Halekulani Bowling Club, a Mounties Group venue, will be hosting an exciting free community event on Sunday 8 October.
The community encounter will see the Mounties Care CareFlight helicopter land on the club grounds for a behind-the-scenes look at how the CareFlight team keep our community safe and connected to lifesaving medical treatment when it is needed most.
Locals are invited to attend to see this state-of-the-art helicopter and meet the CareFlight team behind the controls.
The Mounties Care CareFlight helicopter is an Airbus H145 rapid response helicopter committed to saving lives across Greater Sydney, the Central Coast and Blue Mountains.
The helicopter is one of the most advanced of its kind. Not only can it be airborne and en route to the incident in three minutes, but it can also land in spaces as small as a tennis court.
“Our continuing partnership with CareFlight strengthens the Mounties Group ethos of ‘improving the lives of our members and our community’ and this community event aims to showcase the wonderful work the CareFlight team do with locals,” explained Mounties Group President John Dean.
“As one of the fastest services of its kind in the world, the helicopter delivers a specialist doctor, highly skilled intensive care paramedic and hospital-level equipment as close as possible to a patient anywhere in the greater Sydney area within 15-20 minutes of a 000 call,” he continued.
Being one of the biggest sponsorship support packages in club history, CareFlight proves to be an invaluable life-saving service for the community. The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter responds to accidents daily, varying from sporting accidents, motor vehicle collisions, and house falls.
Alongside the landing of the helicopter, there will be lots of fun filled activities for the entire family at this special event. Activities include live entertainment, face painting and an arts and craft section where kids can create a wooden CareFlight helicopter.
CareFlight CEO, Mick Frewen, said the support Mounties Group has provided to CareFlight has been invaluable. “Our partnership with Mounties Care is a true testament to the organisation’s unwavering commitment to care and health services.
Their continued support over the last year has certainly allowed us to grow our services and save even more lives, and for that we are truly grateful,” said Mr Frewen.
