Peo­ple helped by the Auck­land West­pac Res­cue He­li­copter can meet the crew again at a Res­cue Re­union on Novem­ber 5.

Event or­gan­iser Ker­rie Spicer said pa­tients sel­dom meet paramedics again af­ter the day they are flown in the res­cue he­li­copter.

‘‘Of­ten the last crew see of a pa­tient is when they’re passed into the care of the hos­pi­tal,’’ Spicer said.

In­ten­sive Care Para­medic Rob Gem­mell said the free event will pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity to close the loop be­tween crew and pa­tient.

‘‘The Res­cue Re­union al­lows the crew to see the full out­come and ef­fect our job has on the lives we save. And, in a ther­a­peu­tic sense, pro­vides some clo­sure for the pa­tient,’’ Gem­mell said.

The event at Me­chan­ics Bay in Auck­land will in­clude a light lunch, talks from for­mer pa­tients, res­cue crew demon­stra­tions, and var­i­ous fun ac­tiv­i­ties.

Peo­ple who are keen to at­tend need to re­serve a place be­fore Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20

‘‘We would love to ac­com­mo­date the thou­sands of pa­tients we’ve helped over the years, but due to our lim­ited han­gar space, and in the in­ter­est of safety, we can only wel­come a strictly lim­ited num­ber of guests,’’ Spicer said.

Last year, the ser­vice flew 291 res­cue mis­sions towai­heke.

The av­er­age op­er­a­tional cost of amis­sion is $7,500.

About 60 per cent of op­er­a­tional fund­ing is do­nated by the com­mu­nity, while cen­tral gov­ern­ment pro­vides 40 per cent.
