The SA Red Cross Air Mercy Service (AMS) plays an essential role in the provision of rescue, air ambulance and rural health outreach services to those rendered most vulnerable by geographical, social or economic inequity.
Condition monitoring specialists, WearCheck recently began an ongoing sponsorship of aircraft test kits for the three planes and eight helicopters operated by the AMS.
Technical manager for WearCheck, Steven Lumley, is delighted to help the AMS. ‘We at WearCheck are in awe of how many lives the AMS teams have saved, and how many people are assisted by this wonderful service every single day. To help the AMS reach even more communities, WearCheck has sponsored the condition monitoring of the 11 AMS aircraft.’
‘This gesture is in thanks for the incredible work you all do and the countless lives you save. We want to keep you airborne.’
Mark Lawson, AMO manager, is grateful for the support. ‘The willingness of your lab manager, Meshach, and the team to come in after hours and help us get samples tested and reports issued is really an absolute great show of going the extra mile and supporting us in operating. Excellent client service.’
