Tasmanian Air Rescue Trust
The Government of Tasmania provides a world-class rescue helicopter service to those who live, work and visit Tasmania.
The Tasmanian Air Rescue Trust supports this service, by fundraising, donation, sponsorship and assigning naming rights.
The last week in September saw currency training being undertaken by the crews as it is every month.
This involved the task of ensuring that all personnel were up to speed and trained for the emergencies they face.
This month's training saw a water borne rescue and a night time scenario.

We brought you the story of Josie O'Brien a Westpac staffer who was rescued from Cradle Mt last year and her determination to raise further funds and data based applications for the Trust.
Westpac matched the $15000 donation Josie and her team raised in just over six months and development is well underway for some serious type computer based applications to create greater efficiencies in rescues!
