Capitol Chilled Foods Australia has been a major sponsor and supporter of the rescue service for many years.
One of the benefits of this sponsorship is the school visit program where the regions primary schools get a visit from the Southcare helicopter, walking through the chopper, receiving a sticker and a carton of 300ml fresh Canberra Milk.
