Are you taking part in Movember?

The team Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Movember is an opportunity for men to ditch their razors and grow a moustache to raise money and awareness about men's health. The funds raised each year go towards programmes targeted at prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

Are you currently taking part in Movember? If so, we'd love to see pics of your 'stache! Share in the comments!

Northland Rescue Helicopter Service

Meet Shane Brearley, one of our Pilots.

“It is all about getting the patient where they need to go – we often don’t know what is happening with the patient until after the mission is completed.” And the calls come thick and fast some days.

A combination of hospital transfers or a full rescue in the rural reaches of Northland’s rugged landscapes – or a long flight over the ocean to a ship or vessel out at sea – its always an unknown of what lays ahead.

No two days are the same, and each and every time the pilots have to ensure the choppers are ready. “It’s always different. Each mission, it is nice to know you are making a difference.

We are there as a pilot to transport these people who need help to get where they need to go, whether it’s a hospital transfer for urgent surgery or a full rescue scenario,” he says.
