Please help your rescue crew save more lives

Accident or emergency situations can happen anywhere, anytime. It’s what happens next that matters.

Urgent treatment means a greater chance of patient recovery. When the TECT Rescue Helicopter is tasked to a life-saving emergency rescue via the emergency 111 call system, it is the best and often the only option.

Founded in 2000, the TECT Rescue Helicopter is a free emergency rescue service for the Coastal Bay of Plenty region, bringing life-saving equipment, rescue personnel and trauma-trained Critical Care Flight Paramedics directly to the patient.

We cannot do what we do without the support of our community. We rely on the kindness of people like you to save lives every day.
