You can help prepare crews for any emergency

Aiden lives on North Stradbroke Island. When he cut his arm in an accident, he lost over three litres of blood.

Unless he got to hospital in Brisbane fast, he could have lost his arm—or worse. An RACQ LifeFlight Rescue chopper was dispatched to the rescue.

It is essential that crews are best prepared for any emergency, just like Aiden’s—and this is why your help is needed today.

$200,000 must be raised to ensure crews have the most up-to-date underwater escape training equipment. Please will you give a gift today?

If you’d prefer to donate over the phone, please call
1800 630 014
