Maintenance of BRHS Helipad

Bairnsdale Lions Club gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Kyle Batt with their Cherry Picker for volunteers to assist with the installation of a much needed new windsock at the Bairnsdale Lions Club Helipad at the BRHS. The helipad has serviced East Gippsland since 1993. In the last 12 months Bairnsdale Lions Club has invested approximately $8000 in maintenance of the pad.

Many patients’ lives have been saved by the use of the heli-pad with it being located so close to the hospital allowing them to be transported to specialist emergency service.  The heli-pad has been used 48 times in the last twelve months for emergency patients.
