Jemena Partners with CapRescue

Jemena, a leading Australian energy infrastructure company, has announced its partnership with CapRescue, a vital aerial search and rescue service operating in Central Queensland. Through this collaboration, Jemena will join as a Liftoff partner, providing crucial support to CapRescue’s life-saving missions across the region.

As a company managing significant gas and electricity assets in various parts of eastern and northern Australia, Jemena recognises the importance of community welfare and wellbeing. They are committed to making a positive impact in the communities where they operate by supporting not-for-profit and community organisations.

CapRescue, a community-based, not-for-profit registered charity, plays a critical role in Central Queensland by rapidly deploying medical and rescue teams to major accidents, workplace incidents, and inter-hospital transfers. Since its inception in 1996, CapRescue has saved over 10,000 people across an expansive area of over 350,000 km2.

“Jemena is proud to partner with CapRescue to support their invaluable service to the Central Queensland community,” said Jemena Corporate Affairs General Manager Tania Coltman.

“Their dedication to saving lives aligns with our commitment to safety and enhancing the wellbeing of the communities where we operate. We believe in the importance of giving back, and this partnership reflects our ongoing efforts to make a positive difference.”

In 2023/24, CapRescue’s operating costs are estimated to be $12.5 million, with 40% of the funding reliant on partnerships, fundraising, events, and donations. With helicopters equipped with full aeromedical and counter-disaster capabilities, CapRescue can access and rescue individuals in environments where conventional methods fall short.

CapRescue Operations Manager Kirsty Wooler says that Jemena’s partnership will support an essential service that operates 24/7, 365 days a year, free of charge to Queensland residents.

“Partnerships like the one with Jemena are crucial for sustaining our life-saving organisation, said Ms Wooler.

We are thankful for the support we receive that enables us to continue flying, ensuring that no one is left without critical assistance during emergencies.”
