The New Zealand office of sgfleet is a big supporter of the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust (ARHT). The ARHT is the charitable trust that owns and operates the Auckland based Westpac Rescue Helicopters on behalf of the community it serves.

The support of the families, community organisations and businesses help the helicopter continue its ongoing mission - saving lives. The rescue helicopter is able to be there, free of charge and available to all 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. With two specialised rescue helicopters watching over more than 1.5 million residents and visitors throughout the coverage area of Auckland and the surrounds and staffed full-time by a highly experienced flight crew consisting of pilots, paramedics and crewmen.

This service has been in operation for more than 40 years and was the world's first ever civilian surf-rescue helicopter service. Since then, the service has performed many thousands of rescues and is internationally recognised for its pioneering work in saving lives.

sgfleet is proud to support this great charity that is helping save lives in New Zealand.
