Jellinbah Joins Forces with CapRescue as a Blue Sky Partner

RACQ CapRescue is delighted to announce a new three-year partnership with Jellinbah, a privately owned and operated Central Queensland-based coal company.

As part of our Blue Sky Partner initiative, this alliance will significantly enhance operational viability and enable the continuation of vital rescue services to the people of Central Queensland.

Kirsty Wooler, RACQ CapRescue Operations Manager, said, “Partners play a huge role in our service to the community. We can’t do what we do without their support. Their financial backing is what keeps us flying. Our Blue Sky partners help ensure that whatever the emergency, we have the resources to act swiftly and to rescue people in distress.”

David Scutt, General Manager from Jellinbah, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership. “Our operations support over 600 people, most of whom live in regional Queensland. We love to serve our community, and our organisation’s community loves to support our mission. It’s a win-win. By partnering with CapRescue, we’re contributing to an incredibly vital service and enhancing our commitment to Central Queensland at the same time.”

Tania Fitzgerald, Jellinbah’s Manager of Employee and Community Relations, met Base Manager Jake Moore and Air Crew Officer David Vowell on her recent visit to the hangar to deliver the good news.

“Here at CapRescue, we are incredibly grateful for the generous sponsorship from Jellinbah. Their sponsorship enables us to continue providing vital helicopter services to our community. On behalf of the entire team, I would like to extend our deepest thanks to Jellinbah. Your contribution truly makes a difference in our mission to save lives.” – Jake Moore, Base Manager, CapRescue.

In response, Ms Fitzgerald highlighted the importance of safety for employees at the mine and having the RACQ CapRescue service available.

“Safety is paramount in our operations. Having access to CapRescue’s vital services provides an additional layer of security for our employees and communities. This partnership aligns with our commitment to safety and well-being.”
