Local federal politicians announce $1.625 million matching grant to CQ Rescue

Yesterday, federal members for Dawson and Capricornia, George Christensen and Michelle Landry were on site for the announcement that the RACQ CQ Rescue Helicopter Service had been successful in their $1.625 million matching grant application.

I spoke to a very happy CQ Rescue CEO Ian Rowan on 4MK this morning.

Ian says the overall $3.2 million will "future proof" the service as it grows over the next 10 years with expenditure on everything from accommodation and administration to sewerage and kitchen facilities.
