Our next My Health Hub webinar is ‘National Ambulance Air Desk and ANTS criteria’ and will be held tomorrow night (18 April) between 7 and 8pm hosted by Kathryn Steel, Clinical Manager of our National Air desk and Aaron Waterreus, Specialist Response Manager.
We are carrying out a routine audit of our internal communications channels.
During the Auckland floods earlier this year, some of our brigades and members of our Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) team were called to Orua Bay in Manukau Heads to rescue two people trapped within a collapsed building.
A rescue drill was held at the Ports of Auckland stormwater outfall upgrade project last month. Our National Infrastructure Advisor Jon Harris was invited to observe to learn more about the project and the safety and rescue procedures in place.
Our people who are deployed internationally now have new kit bags with fit for purpose equipment to meet their needs in the wide range of environments they are sent to.
We are recruiting for Technicians and Logistics personnel for USAR. Successful applicants must have completed the CAT-1R or an equivalent course before they start the USAR CAT-2 Technicians and Logistics course.
It has been a busy few months for the Working Safely in Water Project with all the flooding events in the North Island.
