TIPS FROM WELLING­TON FREE AM­BU­LANCE PARAMEDICS

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Meet the paramedics out­side your home so they can eas­ily find your prop­erty.

Take a torch to guide them up the path to your house.

Make sure your house num­ber is vis­i­ble and large enough to read.

Clear the path of over­hang­ing plant growth and moss.

Con­sider out­side light­ing and turn on lights (in­clud­ing in­side the house) while await­ing an am­bu­lance.

Put fam­ily pets in an­other room from the pa­tient.

Lo­cate any med­i­ca­tions the pa­tient takes to show paramedics.

Give the 111 op­er­a­tor as many de­tails as pos­si­ble about how to find your prop­erty if it is dif­fi­cult to find.
