The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter is a warning businesses in Byron Shire to look out for a man asking for discounted accommodation and services while he claims to be stationed with the service.

The service has received two reports from local accommodation providers this week of a man alleging that he has paid the service to receive special training.

The man is around 40 years of age and about two metres tall, a service spokesperson said.

‘The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter, based in Lismore, does not act as an external training organisation, nor does it accept offers of payment for members of the public to receive pilot or aircrew qualifications or training,’ the spokesperson said.

‘If you are approached by a man seeking discounted accommodation or making such claims please notify the service on (02)6627 4444 immediately, who will then contact the police.’
