Yancoal continues flying with RACQ Capricorn service

Yarrabee Coal Mine renewed their sponsorship of the RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service last month, donating $25,000.

For Operations Manager Cris Shadbolt, the mine’s continued support of the RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service was an easy decision.

“There may be an occasion where one of our people need this service or their friends or family,” he said.

“Ensuring this life saving service remains accessible to all people in our region is vital to our community.”

This service is available across Central Queensland 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days per year and provides rapid deployment of medical or rescue teams to major accidents or search and rescue operations.

Operations Manager for RACQ CHRS Kirsty Wooler said it was only through the support of companies like Yarrabee that their service continues to be available.

“We rely heavily on funding from the major industries in our serviceable area to keep our community rescue service operational.”
