On Friday 9 December, the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter was tasked to attend to a medical event east of Taupo. The rescue helicopter flew the woman to Rotorua Hospital for treatment.
The Greenlea Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to the Whanganui River on the evening of Saturday 10 December by the RCCNZ, after a beacon was activated downstream of Whakahoro. The worsening weather slowed the progress of the helicopter, so a jet boat was also dispatched and was able to locate the destressed party and assist with the recovery.
Then on Sunday 11 December, the rescue helicopter was dispatched to the Waihohonu Hut on the eastern side of the Tongariro National Park and transported a woman in her twenties to Taupo Hospital.
