Garth Snaidero

Rescue Crewman

Garth has been part of the RACQ CapRescue team since 2012, after spending eight years in Townsville as a rescue crewman on the EMQ Rescue Helicopter.

Before that, Garth’s interest in aviation led him to join the Australian Defence Force. Today, Garth’s sense of mission and purpose is fuelled by genuinely helping people who are having one of the worst days of their lives. As a rescue crewman his duties include ensuring aircraft readiness, conducting passenger and patient briefings, assisting the onboard doctor and paramedic, and conducting winch operations.
