For the past 12 months, nine volunteer firefighters from the Puaikura Fire Brigade have been training towards obtaining the Pre Hospital Emergency Care qualification.

 

The group of firefighters wanted to support the Cook Island Ambulance Service by upskilling their first-aid skills and helping where required to tend to people in need.

Collectively the firefighters have sacrificed more than 700 hours to theory and 24 hours of practical and written assessments.

The practical assessments included various scenarios that allowed the firefighters to demonstrate their patient assessment skills and clinical knowledge.
