Already two of our Paramedic team have been assessed, vetted and issued their registration numbers.
Congratulations to "Registered Paramedics" Jules and Sam!!!
Paramedics are now regulated by the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003, with Te Kaunihera Manapou Paramedic Council ensuring that paramedics are competent and fit to practise, the principal purpose being public protection.
With this comes title protection. Section 7 of the Act sets out that only people who are registered as paramedics with the Council may claim to be a "Paramedic" or use words, titles, initials, abbreviations or descriptions implying that they are a paramedic.
The Medics On Scene Training Trust has a limited supply of Lifepak CR Plus AEDs that have been discounted hugely!!! Check out the deal at the Charity's website :
RECOVERED!! Good news, our basket stretcher found its way back to us at Sunday night's Shapeshifter concert at Black Barn Vineyards after being stolen at the previous concert.
A great result and we're "stoked" 😀
Particular thanks to Francis and Gina from Black Barn, all the guys at Red Badge Group Ltd who were so willing to help, all the guys involved with Shapeshifter (especially Sam who came to see me personally), L.A.B & Sunshine Sound System who were so willing to help get word out there, and of course everyone who commented and pm'd with info and support. "Respect" also to Eastern District Police who got the word out there on social media too.
Thanks for all the support!!!

Many of you have noticed the new Mobile Treatment Unit being used at motocross events, but have you seen "Forbes" yet? Forbes is our 4x4 Paramedic Response Unit, or Ambulance ... we call it a "4x4bulance"! Forbes can get our Paramedics into places that a notmal ambulance can't touch which is really quite helpful if your event is in an area where the terrain is more challenging. Forbes can't get everywhere but he can get our Paramedics, ICPs and their Advanced Life Support resources a lot closer to the patient than a normal ambulance. (If your event requires something even more off-road capable, remember we can use the Side-by-side 4x4 - not as comfy though!)
This is from the final round in the Hawke's Bay Motorcycle Club Magic series at Valley Road on Sunday (13th of August 2017), sponsored by TaylorCorp. We've thoroughly enjoyed providing the medical coverage at the events that HBMCC has put on and we are really looking forward to being there for the completion of the 2 hour series and other future events. Thanks to all at HBMCC for having us there.

Yes it was wet, yes it was cold but these guys at Maraekakaho Pony Club were having fun at the Hairy Horse Show on Sunday! Thanks to the club for the coffee and sausage sandwich, and to the kids for the entertainment! Shout out to Rodger for letting us provide medical cover and our thanks to Sharon Daly for helping out on the day!
