The TECT Rescue Helicopter, established in 2000, serves the Coastal Bay of Plenty region, providing a 24-hour emergency service, 365 days a year.

Dispatched through the 111-call system, the TECT Rescue Helicopter brings life-saving equipment, rescue personnel and trauma-trained medics directly to the patient. The timely assistance that the rescue helicopter provides can reduce disability and improve survival. The sooner treatment begins, the greater the chance of patient recovery.

As they rely on the community to help fund the service, donations made through the Acorn Foundation are greatly appreciated. Thank you for helping them save lives.
