Brandt Donates to H.E.R.O.S.

Accidents happen, and when people get hurt, the time it takes to get them to hospital can mean the difference between life and death.

Brandt recognizes that risk and through its Thanks a Billion program, has donated $10,000 to help fund the not-for-profit Northern B.C. Helicopter Emergency Response Operations Society (H.E.R.O.S.) in its efforts to bring a dedicated rapid-response air ambulance helicopter service to Prince George.

“Our work in the north is high risk, our people work hard and we need to protect them and that is ultimately what a service like H.E.R.O.S. can do for us,” said Foji Dhansaw, Brandt Tractor’s division manager for northern B.C.

The H.E.R.O.S base of operations will be staffed by flight/maintenance crews and paramedics, and its helicopter will be ready to launch within minutes of receiving an emergency call. Pilots can be equipped with night-vision technology to allow night-time flights to remote areas in most weather conditions. The H.E.R.O.S. organization will work together with the B.C. Ambulance Service and other first responders, Northern Health, all three levels of government and First Nations to develop an operational plan. 

“It’s encouraging to see companies like Brandt Tractor step out to support our cause and this generous donation will help us in our efforts to improve pre-hospital care for the people of northern B.C.,” said H.E.R.O.S. executive director Roberta Squire.
