Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service
SLSWA’s Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopters (WLRH’s) play a crucial role in coastal safety and identifying emergencies. Manned by paid and volunteer personnel, the highly-trained crews are on the lookout for people in distress.
This includes locating rip currents and incidents on beaches, as well as identifying risks from marine life, including sharks. The services are also regularly tasked with assisting Water Police and other agencies in search and rescue activities.
