The airstrip at Sutherland is a 1.5 km long dirt airstrip which is in a good condition. Aerocare is one of the few air ambulances that can land on a dirt airstrip which makes them more accessible to the people in the country side.
The patient was brought to the airstrip with a police vehicle (Venture), as Sutherland does not have an ambulance.
