CAA E-News | Latest News from Services



Dear friends & colleagues,

Here at CAA we are always on the hunt for the latest news and developments from our member ambulance services. We are inspired by the incredible work the services and their teams do on a daily basis, looking after the health of our fellow countrymen and women, working with communities, producing groundbreaking research and developing new innovative tools and projects to further the ambulance profession and pre-hospital care for patients. 

In this newsletter, we wanted to share some great examples of the work our services have been doing recently, from engaging the community to designing a new funky-looking ambulance in WA to changing ambulance services for a more sustainable future in Victoria.  

We hope you enjoy learning more about our wonderful ambulance community. 

With kindest regards,

Mojca Bizjak-Mikic
General Manager
