Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust (ARHT)
WorldxChange Communications is a strong supporter of the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust having delivered their telephony and communication needs since 2006. Our network ensures that they are able to remain in contact, whether it is to despatch a helicopter to save lives, or to provide them with the financial assistance to keep their machines in the air. WorldxChange also hosts a number of fund raising activities each year to demonstrate our support and extend our reach into the wider community.
"For the last seven years WXC have been meeting the trusts telecommunication needs.
They provide us with an incredibly reliable, professional and inexpensive service which not only allows us to make contact with our many supporters within the greater Auckland region, via our tele fundraising operation, but they also provide our flight crews with the ability to communicate with other medical personnel & emergency services."
John Hooper, GM - Marketing & Fundraising
WXC provides Auckland Coastguard with access to wireless IP services on rescue vessels that enables land based rescue controllers significantly improved realtime data and video communication. This service ensures enhanced understanding, and improved decision making support for crews engaged in the critical life and death situations on Auckland's busy waters.
"Through the support of WXC we have been able to bring both our heavy rescue vessels online. WXC worked to provide us a solution which means we can now provide a wireless hotspot aboard the boats for linking ourselves to valuable Search and Rescue resources. We now have the platform to bring specialised tools into play, as well as the ability to stream live video of an incident back to land to assist our command structure in Search and Rescue Co-ordination."
