NSW Premier Kristina Keneally has given an additional $500,000 grant to the Tamworth region helicopter rescue service during the opening ceremony of the service’s new headquarters at Tamworth Airport on November 26.
The additional funds, on top of the $4 million the service has already received from the state government, will go towards a flight planning centre, enhanced engineering facilities and upgrades to the headquarters building for the service, which is responsible for fully one-third of New South Wales.
The service will hold an open day at its new facilities on December 11.
