For many years Cornell Engineers was a proud supporter of CQ Rescue. RACQ CQ Rescue is a community helicopter rescue service with an operating base in Mackay.
Anyone who travels the highway north,south or west of Mackay knows the value CQ Rescue provides – a superfast trip to hospital with an intensive care paramedic the whole way should you need it.
It’s a great rescue service staffed by caring professionals. As a Community Helicopter Provider (CHP), RACQ CQ Rescue relies heavily upon the community to provide funding for operational purposes. These funds are sourced through sponsorships, business donations, workplace giving programs, annual appeals, bequests, and fundraising events.
