Central Queensland is a big region and for the past 25 years CapRescue has been the fast response our community has needed — saving countless lives throughout the years. We are the eyes in the sky during a search, the reassurance when the unexpected happens and the sound of relief to those in need 24/7.
While CapRescue is a small operation compared to other industry providers, our community spirit far exceeds our competitors. We are here for the benefit of the community and responsible to the community and we would not want it any other way. After all, from the beginning through to today and into the future, our community advocates, fundraises and supports CapRescue without question. Our community is as vital to our service as we are to them.
The past 25 years have not been without their challenges but each one has been overcome with pride and integrity. From humble beginnings we have grown from a single-engine aircraft sitting on the tarmac to two world-standard twin engine IFR aircraft, garaged within a nationally enviable multi-million-dollar hangar.
After flicking through the previous posts, you may be asking yourself “where to now?” Opportunities will be aplenty and while no one can predict with certainty what the next 25 years might look like, one thing is certain: we are local, and we intend to stay that way. We rescue your friends and family, we operate in your backyard, we fundraise in your town and our volunteers are your workmates. Community has always been, and always will be, at the heart of every decision. Together let’s embrace the future, set our own pace and always strive for excellence.
