IOR Bulk Fuel Trailer Helps RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Refuel Around the Clock

For RACQ LifeFlight Rescue, being able to refuel their helicopters at a moments’ notice is critical to saving a life. That means having access to fuel 24/7. To ensure this is possible, IOR has proudly provided the LifeFlight Roma Base with a bulk Jet A1 trailer which is filled with fuel and ready for when the LifeFlight crew need to take off on another mission to save lives.

The 1450 litre bulk Jet A1 trailer is constructed with an aluminium skin and has been supplied at no cost to LifeFlight. Compliant with all storage regulations as well as dangerous goods transport regulations, the trailer has been custom fit with dispensing equipment so LifeFlight are able to fuel up faster and save more Queensland lives.

‘With the helicopter operating 24/7, it is vital that LifeFlight is able to have timely access to fuel, particularly when tasked outside standard operating hours for fuel suppliers.  Having the IOR fuel tanker filled, and on standby, ensures efficiencies in aircraft refuelling turnaround times.’

– LifeFlight Roma Base Manager, Bryce Duke.
