On the 1 January 2020 at 10am, the TECT Rescue helicopter was tasked to fly a 23 year old male from Whakatane hospital to Waikato hospital with a spinal injury he received from diving into a swimming pool.
The TECT Rescue Helicopter was then tasked to fly from Waikato hospital to Patetonga where two cars collided on SH27. Several people were injured and the TECT rescue helicopter flew a 42 year old American woman to Waikato hospital with serious injuries.
Before leaving Waikato hospital, the TECT Rescue helicopter was tasked to Mt Maunganui where a 79 year old male was near the summit and collapsed. The TECT Rescue helicopter landed near the summit and the paramedic walked to the patient who was on the walking track. Due to the location of the patient, it was decided to winch the patient into the helicopter. He was stabilized and flown to Tauranga hospital.
