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.

Please help us keep saving Northland lives by donating today.

New Blue Recycling Bins

Tom from Onerahi

Ok I can forsee more expenditure coming for the new District council. These new blue bins are one third smaller than the red bins. As I am aware we need to do alot more to reduce waste and recycle more. Why did the council not consider placing strategically bottlebanks every 5 -10 streets, and arrange to have them emptied every 2-3 weeks. I live in an area where i know that some homes use two red bins to put out their empty beer and wine bottles along with the plastic bottles containers and jars. I have a feeling that there will be alot of people going into the council in a months time saying their blue bins have developed legs and walked of with friendly people to live at their addresses in order to get new bins. I am sooo looking forward to how the district council explain this one.
