Taranaki Civil Construction Supports Alpine Rescue Team

Taranaki Civil Alpine Rescue Team

Taranaki Civil Construction has pledged its support to the Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust for the next three years, including the naming rights for the specialist Alpine Rescue Team.

Taranaki Civil is thrilled to announce the company’s increased support of the Taranaki Helicopter Trust, after coming on board as an Associate Sponsor last year.

“As a family orientated and local company, we bring a personal touch to our business and we continue to grow and diversify which aligns well with the Rescue Helicopter and the vital service that it provides to our Community,” says Simon Mulligan, the Director.

“This partnership increases our level of support for the whole Taranaki Community and directly supports the volunteer Alpine Rescue Team in our unique Taranaki landscape as well as ensuring the ongoing servicing and maintenance of the helicopter.”

Evan Cottam, Chair of the Taranaki Rescue Helicopter, says the Trust is extremely grateful for Taranaki Civil Construction’s commitment and support since coming on board in 2019.

“This generous sponsorship provides some certainty to our Alpine Rescue Team over the next three years, ensuring our crew of volunteers have all the necessary equipment and training to undertake life-saving rescue missions on our mountain.” says Evan.

The sponsorship will be acknowledged with branding on the rescue helicopter and the official naming of the “Taranaki Civil Alpine Rescue Team”.

“It is because of sponsors like Taranaki Civil Construction that our Rescue Helicopter remains one of the country’s essential rescue helicopter services having completed over 250 missions so far this year, more than at the same time last year,” says Evan.

The Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust would also like to acknowledge and thank outgoing sponsor Fulton Hogan for their support over the last three years.  The new Taranaki Civil Construction sponsorship takes effect from 1 December 2020.
