LifeF­light records big­gest year

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

LIFEF­LIGHT has been kept busy in the Bund­aberg– Bur­nett area this year with a record num­ber of more than 265 res­cue mis­sions.

The end of the fi­nan­cial year marked the char­ity’s busiest year in its 36-year his­tory, with its doc­tors, com­mu­nity res­cue he­li­copters and Air Am­bu­lance jets per­form­ing a record 5,252 mis­sions.

Chair­man Rob Bor­bidge said LifeF­light was proud to con­tinue help­ing so many in the com­mu­nity by pro­vid­ing a world class aeromed­i­cal ser­vice.

“The record year pays tes­ta­ment to the grow­ing im­por­tance that our aeromed­i­cal crews play in Queens­land, es­pe­cially in ru­ral and re­mote ar­eas, in their life­sav­ing mis­sions,” Mr Bor­bidge said.
