Group Trapped By Bushfire

30/9/18 – Shortly after midday, our crew were tasked to Rainbow Falls, Blackdown Tableland to provide assistance to a bushwalking group that had become isolated by a wild bushfire.


Upon arrival at Rainbow Falls, a group of approximately 8 people were located in close proximity to the bushfire front. The decision was promptly made to winch the onboard Rescue Crewman to the group to provide assistance and direct the group away from the moving bushfire.


The group were successfully evacuated from the scene by ground personnel. This is the third winch task the RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service has conducted this week, proving to be a busy period in our region.
