Launched last week, the designated Helicopter Landing Site has been a collaborative effort between the Toorbul Community and District Association (TCDA), City of Moreton Bay, construction company Fulton Hogan and Lifeflight, at no cost to residents.

The helipad site is in the Toorbul and Donnybrook Seniors Club carpark.

Moreton Mayor Peter Flannery applauded the local community and TDCA president John Buckby for their commitment to this community resource.

“Toorbul has only one road in and out, so in the case of emergency, this helipad is an important asset,” Cr Flannery said.

Councillor Brooke Savige (Division 1) said, “LifeFlight is a world leader in aeromedical care, with a core purpose to save lives and serve the community so their support will be of great benefit to Toorbul and surrounds.”

Mr Buckby said the helipad was a wonderful achievement that showcased what could be achieved when Council and community work together
