Working with Rotary Clubs of Newlands and Cape of Good Hope, we’ve helped provide marshals and public safety teams for events such as the Cape Cycle Tour, the Stellenbosch Cycle Race and the Cape Town Marathon. The two Rotary clubs have reciprocated by assisting with fund raisers that have resulted in us raising much needed funding to acquire and kit out our support vehicle and our incident response vehicle.
We’re proud to work along side METRO EMS in implementing the Emergency First Aid Responder (EFAR) programme in Ocean View. As part of their awareness and training our teams do ride-alongs with METRO so that we get to see first hand what it takes to be a paramedic, and it allows us to get good experience.
We work with the Enviro Wildfire in providing marshals and medical teams so that we can help ensure the safety of the motor-cyclists and the public, and thus contributing to a successful charity that makes a difference in the lives of under-privileged children.
