Hastings Deering continue life-saving partnership

RACQ CapRescue is excited to welcome industry leader Hastings Deering as a returning Lift Off Partner of the life-saving service.

The renewed 3-year partnership between the local Rockhampton branch and RACQ CapRescue will ensure the continuation of the world-class aeromedical Rescue300 helicopter in the Central Queensland region.

With a relationship that spans almost ten years, it is evident that both companies value long-term relationships with customers and key stakeholders.

“We strive to understand the needs of those we work with so that through collaboration, we can achieve the best outcomes for everyone,” said Hastings Deering Area Manager – Rockhampton Peter Martin.

RACQ CapRescue’s Operations Manager Kirsty Wooler comments.

“The values held by Hastings Deering align perfectly with the CapRescue cause. Their dedication to be accountable to deliver on promises and commitments is helping our service do the same for the people in our region.”

With almost 600 employees that are part of the over 300,000 people in the CapRescue region, Hastings Deering staff and management all recognise the importance of the service and show their support in many ways.

“In addition to the three-year partnership, our staff contribute through our Workplace Giving Program, assist with fundraising activities, and we sponsor the annual Resources Charity Golf Day for which RACQ CapRescue is the beneficiary,” said Mr Martin.

“We are very proud to be once again associated with RACQ CapRescue. It is one of those organisations you hope you will never need, but it is reassuring knowing it is there.”

As demand for our service increases, corporate partnerships such as this ensure that we can continue providing our vital lifesaving service to the people of Central Queensland. Currently, our rescue team averages 1.4 daily tasks, comprising primary attendance at accident scenes and workplaces, as well as search and rescue activities. We also attend to the retrieval of critical patients from outlying hospitals. Our vital service operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, at no cost to the patient.
