SCOTLAND ISLANDERS PUSH FOR A HELIPAD
25 MAR 10 @
05:24PM BY DANIELLE NICASTRI
RESIDENTS have suggested a helipad on Scotland Island for faster
emergency transport to hospital.
Evacuations are currently carried out by a co-ordinated Rural Fire
Service boat ride to Church Point then an ambulance trip to Mona Vale
or Royal North Shore hospitals.
The trip takes up to 20 minutes from the island to Church Point, then
50 minutes in a normal road trip to Royal North Shore.
Karin Kruger, from the Scotland Island Residents Association, said
evacuations are planned and organised for pregnant women but not other
“When things happen really quickly you need to make sure you have all
the emergency services access here,” she said.
The idea has been discussed for several years, according to the Rural
Fire Service, but has not been taken further.
Ms Krueger said helicopters could land on the mud flats around the
island during low tide.
Pittwater Council community relations manager Sally Williams said it
could examine the helipad idea. “The council has not previously
received any inquiries regarding this issue,” she said.
“We could examine the feasibility of a dedicated helicopter landing
area at Catherine Park (on Scotland Island).
“This could take the form of a mowed area with signage if required.
“In the last 10 years, there have been around 10 evacuations of this
“Our view is that any helicopter landing on the island would therefore
be a very rare event.”
A spokeswoman for NSW Ambulance Service said it would use the medical
helicopter in certain emergencies if a landing place was available.
