Northern NSW : Rescue - Summer 2014
The environment the Service operates in is a dynamic one; changes are constantly occurring with the introduction of new equipment, new procedures and new people. The Service is responsible for the safety of 170 paramedics, doctors and nurses who fly missions on the Service’s aircraft. As a result, ongoing communication and consultation is essential. Employees and contractor staff need to know about the specific risks in their jobs and the controls in place to guard against accident or injury. While Essential Energy hopes that no one ever needs to use it, the organisation is proud to be a logo rights sponsor and long term supporter of the Service. Natural disasters, fire and floods in NSW over the past year has had crews of both Essential Energy and the Service working in treacherous conditions to help save lives and restore much needed power to affected areas. Our Crew and Pilots work closely with the team at Essential Energy. Pictured above: Dave Davies, Trent Owen, Stuart O’Mally, Sean Maher and Mike de Winton.
