Voted New Zealand’s Most Trusted Charity 2018 – Message from the CEO

On 30th May I attended the Readers Digest Most Trusted Brands Awards 2018 and very proudly accepted the award for Most Trusted Charity on behalf of Canterbury & West Coast Air Rescue Trust, Life Flight Trust, Philips Search & Rescue Trust and the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust.  The four organisations who combine to provide the service which is known so well throughout New Zealand as the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

To be recognised as New Zealand’s Most Trusted Charity means a great deal to all of our staff, our crew, our sponsors, and everyone who donates to keep our helicopters in the air 24/7/365.

Trust is fundamental to everything we do.

The operation of rescue helicopters relies on trust between pilots, paramedics and doctors as they respond to emergency calls; trust between the patient, their families and our clinical team so that we can provide the best possible care; and ultimately the trust of the public that we will be there when they need us, because New Zealanders have come to rely upon us in their moments of greatest need.

Each year our helicopters provide rescue services to thousands of New Zealanders who for one reason or another have found themselves in a moment of crisis.  Whether they are lost or injured at sea or in the bush, if they have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, or are experiencing a life threatening medical event, quite often the rescue helicopter is the lifeline that for a moment in time is the difference between life and death.
