About Me
I'm an Australian who has a passion for all things Health & Safety. I've been at the sharp end in emergency response for all but 8 years of my working life, during the latter time I supervised those instructing in emergency response and flew a desk.
I'm married with 3 adult children and live 2 blocks from the best beach in Australia.

I like seeing the end result of the work that I do and I get great satisfaction from knowing that in some small way I have been responsible for keeping people alive or making their lives a little better.
Day Job
First Aid Services Coordinator for a group of government training facilities including daily clinical responsibilities for a large Campus
I Love Being in EMS Because
it enables me to help people and to put something back into my community.I also enjoy the daily challenges that the work presents.

Cheers Grizzly!

I could only wish for a winter with temperatures like -5C!!! It often gets as cold as -35/-40C here in winter!
Yes, the pic was taken during the summer months. I am on vacation and enjoying that pool!!
I can most certainly send you the latest patch from our service. I appreciate you agreeing to a trade. The patch is a very attractive design. Nice work. My postal address is:

Hey Greg!
Just thought I would drop by to say hello. Would there be a chance of swapping a patch or two with me? I noticed that you posted some nice pictures of patches, you obviously collect right? I have many different styles from Australia but am always looking for more. I don't have the one you are wearing in picture number 13 nor do I have the army medic patch. I do see that you have the old style Quebec patch posted. I have the new style which is much nicer. In any case, please let me know if you are interested? Please stay safe my friend!!!
