Last Wednesday we welcomed Tasmania Talks with Brain Carlton to Mountain Heights School to broadcast his show LIVE on location. 

This co-insided with a visit from the WESTPAC Rescue Helicopter. After students completed the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Schools Program, which aims to develop students’ understanding of emergency service operations and the equipment used in emergency situations.

About 3000 schools took part in the program across Australia and this school was the only one in the state to receive a special landing,

Students from Strahan Primary School also attended the landing on Wednesday and the whole community had been invited to the event.

Representatives from the Tasmanian Fire Service, Ambulance Tasmania and Tasmania Police also attended.

The Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service has been serving the Australian community since 1973.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service in Tasmania is a free service that is available to the members of the community 24 hours a day.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter landed on site  with the crew having a fantastic time. From left Pilot Yass, Intensive Care Paramedic Dave, and Air Crewmen Mick and Chris.
