Leading Aircrewman (LACMN) Sarah Christenson, 771 Naval Air Squadron (Search and Rescue)

Now that this day has arrived, she was doubly proud that it was Rob who presented her with the RN SAR Certificate and that she also had the opportunity to show her father around 771 Naval Air Squadron when he visited.

Sarah has now joined the other 10 Aircrewman in 771 Naval Air Squadron, all of whom are trained to not only rescue any casualties wherever they may be but are medically trained to Hazardous Environment Medical Technician (HEMT) standard (equivalent to NHS Ambulance technician) in order to provide the most suitable medical care during the rescue and subsequent transfer to the nearest suitable hospital.

“I am immensely proud to receive this certificate and to join the distinguished group of aircrew who have been continuously saving lives in this, the 60th anniversary of RN helicopter SAR”, said Sarah.
