Queensland Paramedics compete on World stage




Four United Voice ambulance officers are jetting off to Baltimore in the USA later this week to take part in a World paramedic competition.


Simon Houstoun, Lawrence Odlin, Kroy Day and Casey James will compete against emergency service professionals from right across the globe in the Journal of Emergency Services (JEMS) Games.

The United Voice paramedics were invited to take part in the games after competing in the Ferno Australia Paramedic Simulation Challenge on the Gold Coast last year.

The challenge explored team performance, clinical excellence and communications skills by putting participants through a simulation of an emergency situation.

Last year the JEMS Games scenario was set around a NASCAR race. With several injuries to handle, the competing teams had to assess the injuries, prioritise and successfully attend to each injury.

The team will fly out from Brisbane Airport on Sunday morning to Baltimore in the United States to take part in the JEMS Games.
