United Voice received a few queries from members who participated in the simulated multi-casualty incident ‘Exercise Jarvis’ on May 4th.
We followed the matter up and insisted QAS remunerate those officers who had participated in the exercise.
QAS have now advised the union that paramedics who participated in the event, and claimed payment, have been paid. Other paramedics who participated and wish to claim payment are encouraged to do so, and will be paid.
