In 2016, RACQ CQ Rescue celebrates 20 years of saving lives in this region and will surpass 7,000 missions.
Often a patient’s only lifeline, the Mackay-based RACQ CQ Rescue helicopter rescues, transfers, retrieves and winches many hundreds of people each year, providing aeromedical and search and rescue assistance to those in dire situations in this region.
During 2015, the rescue helicopter recorded 518 tasks, from babies to the elderly, for injuries sustained from accidents, illnesses such as cardiac conditions, strokes, envenomations from jellyfish and snakes, and severe respiratory conditions.
As a community helicopter provider, RACQ CQ Rescue is available to all residents, workers and visitors in regions between Townsville and Rockhampton. In real terms, our area of operation is greater than four times the size of Tasmania and we are on call to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
While the service comes at no cost to our Australian patients, operational costs to ensure the rescue helicopter and its professional crew are available when needed, are expected to be in the vicinity of $8.3 million per annum in 2016.
