We are currently working on a roadmap back to training. At present we will be working with our existing volunteers to complete COVID-19 Induction training in the coming weeks to allow them back to training and to cover community events.

We hope to be able to offer first aid and ambulance services from Mid to late August. This is dependent on completion of COVID-19 training, PPE and risk assessments of each duty.
