This month is Snowy Hydro SouthCare Awareness Month, which is a pretty cool thing to be aware of.

This March the Snowy Hydro SouthCare Helicopter Fund is urging the public to support their
local rescue helicopter during their dedicated ‘Awareness Month’. There are many ways
individuals, groups, schools, workplaces and businesses can be involved and help keep their
local rescue helicopter in the air saving lives.
This Awareness Month, Snowy Hydro SouthCare will commemorate a special milestone and
acknowledge 5,000 missions since 1998. This is a huge achievement for the service and a
testament to its highly skilled flight and medical crew.

I understood all that, and hopefully you do too. They then went on to say:

To mark the 5000th mission, a case involving a farming accident has been selected which took place on Wednesday 30 January 2013, when the Snowy Hydro SouthCare Helicopter was tasked to Braidwood on a primary mission.

I found this a little confusing so I wrote back asking for some clarification on what exactly that case had been ‘selected’ for. I received this in response:

The 5000th mission was to Braidwood

So… uhh there you go.
