New Zealand's rescue helicopters provide a vital safety net for all people. Performing over 7,290 missions last year and operating nationwide through 16 local rescue helicopter services, many of the rescue choppers act as flying intensive care units. Along with remote rescue, the highly trained specialist crews have been called upon to perform critical hospital transfers, attend emergency births, and respond to car and boating accidents. In fact they may attend any type of emergency where rapid response or difficult location is a factor. And they'll do this any time of the day or night, every day of the year, right across the country.
