AMBULANCE OFFICER MAKES ULTIMATE SACRIFICE

A dedicated ambulance officer passed away after a serious ambulance crash in the Waikato yesterday.

NZPFU members join all emergency service workers today in sending their condolences and support to the Ambulance Officer’s family, friends and colleagues.

The member gave 55 years of service to St John and had been an Ambulance Officer for 27 years.

Tragically, a driver of a car was also killed and a registered nurse who was the second occupant of the ambulance was seriously injured.

As a mark of respect all emergency service vehicles are requested to drive with headlights on dip today.

The NZPFU also sends it support to the firefighters and other emergency service workers  that attended the accident, including other ambulance staff attending to one of their own.
