We can't wait for you to join us to kick off the CAA2021 webinar series tomorrow.
The Webinar Series is designed to bring you speakers on current hot topics, new innovations, ideas, and training from the Australasian ambulance sector.
On 9th December 2019 just after 2pm New Zealand time the Whakaari/White Island in New Zealand's Bay of Plenty explosively erupted. At the time of the eruption, 47 people were on the island, 22 people subsequently died (approximately half within the first hours) and 34 were treated for serious injuries, many of these for severe burn injuries.
St John New Zealand was the responding road ambulance service, and Dr Tony Smith, Clinical Director for the service helped lead the response which has proven to be one of the most challenging events in Tony's long-standing medical career.
One year on from this catastrophic event, Tony joins us to speak on the eruption and his team’s response.
Dr Tony Smith chairs the working group that develops the clinical procedures and guidelines for the ambulance sector in New Zealand, serves as a doctor for the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service of the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust.
Please join us in welcoming Dr Tony Smith to kick off the CAA2021 Webinar Series.
Thursday 28th January 2021 at 11.30am AEDT
