MY Daily News has renewed its sponsorship agreement with the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.
The service operates 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year and has completed more than 6700 life-saving missions across northern NSW.
The service's flight area spans 40,000 square kilometres - from the Queensland border, south to Nambucca Heads/Macksville and west to Tenterfield and Glen Innes, using specially-trained doctors, paramedics, pilots and crew members.
It is responsible for search and rescue, flying to the scenes of accidents to airlift critical patients and transferring patients from regional hospitals to major/specialist hospitals.
The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter service costs $6.5million to run for a year, and as a registered charity relies on the support of the community and corporate sector for more than half of its budget.
My Daily News publisher Ron Goodman said he was pleased to be able to support the service.
"The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter is something people rely on across our region," Mr Goodman said.
"We're proud to be able to put our support behind such a well-respected and vital community service."
