The Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service has announced it will host a Community Open Day at the Gosford Entertainment Grounds on March 3.
Entry to the event is free and there will be entertainment for the whole family, including an array of market stalls and the chance to discover how emergency service crews operate.
The Open Day will run from 11am until 3pm, with attendees being treated to seeing the Rescue Helicopter land between 1:30pm and 2:30pm.
Once the helicopter lands, the community will have the opportunity to meet the aircrew on board and learn more about the Service and the capabilities of the aircraft.
Chief Executive Officer of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter, Richard Jones, said the Service regularly responds to a diverse range of missions throughout the Central Coast region and this would not be possible without the continued support from the local community.
“The Community Open Day has been organised as a way of thanks to the people of the Central Coast.
“We are looking forward to providing our supporters with an update on their Service and also informing them about the many ways they can get involved or support the Westpac Rescue Helicopter,” he said.
