Westpac Chopper Appeal: Crewman explains how rescue helicopters work and how they keep people safe

Accidents can happen in a matter of seconds and it's thanks to the life-saving help and support of our Westpac Rescue Helicopters that thousands of Kiwis are able to stay safe.

The rescue choppers allow Kiwis to enjoy day-to-day activities and adventures while knowing that if things go wrong, help is only a few minutes away.

The Westpac Chopper Appeal is running for the month of May, giving New Zealanders a chance to support their local rescue chopper's efforts to keep us all safe.
