Katikati St John am­bu­lance crews at­tended 29 in­ci­dents last week, 23 of which were in the Katikati op­er­a­tional area, the re­main­der in Tau­ranga, Mount Maun­ganui and Pa¯ pa¯ moa Beach. Two shift swaps took place be­tween Katikati and Tau­ranga crews in the same pe­riod.

Eigh­teen pa­tients were trans­ported to med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties, seven were treated at home, two were re­ferred to other agen­cies, and on two oc­ca­sions the am­bu­lance was not re­quired.

Twenty med­i­cal cases and seven trauma cases were seen. The O¯ moko­roa First Re­sponse Unit at­tended three calls be­fore the am­bu­lance came and Tau­ranga crews re­sponded to 10 calls in the Katikati area.
