Ulysses club Ambulance run

Been 0n a few rides lately, so starting to almost looking forward to rides getting less as winter aproaches, wash my mouth out with soap as i don't really mean it.

Was a great autumn day with temps of 16 c or 60 F, no wind and blue sky. This was the annual fundraiser for the Uylsses club to raise money for ST John ambulance.



Lunch stop, i think the count was 40 bikes.

Yes it is a great cause, like a copy from there web site below if anyone interested it is run by 900 paid with 2800 volunteers, if you travel to NZ it is good to know that a ambulance will pick you up and not ask how much money you have in your bank account.



St John provides ambulance services for approximately 90% of New Zealand's population. Each year, more than 900 paid and 2800 volunteer St John Ambulance Officers care for and save the lives of thousands of New Zealanders and visitors to the country.

To call for an ambulance in an emergency phone 111

All St John Ambulance Officers are trained under a nationally accredited training programme. After achieving the National Certificate in Ambulance (Patient Care & Transport), they progress through intravenous and cardiac qualifications to become St John Paramedics. Ambulance Officers who complete the National Diploma in Ambulance (Paramedic) then become Advanced Paramedics. Ambulance officers also have the opportunity to complete the Bachelor of Health Science in Paramedic degree programme.

The St John Ambulance Service operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Conventional ambulances, four-wheel drive vehicles, rapid response units, motorcycles and helicopters ensure St John will come to your aid at any hour of the day in almost any terrain, weather or situation. Our services are managed and directed to the site through Emergency Ambulance Communication Centres that despatch and coordinate all the emergency land, water and air ambulance services.

In addition to emergency ambulance services, St John also:

Transports patients for arranged hospital admissions and to hospital outpatient clinics
Transfers patients between hospitals or from hospital to home
Assists police and fire services by providing medical cover in emergency situations
Arranges and staffs air ambulance flights and connections
Monitors personal medical alarms







Details on Patient Part Charges
There is a part charge to patients for ambulance attendance and/or transport for medical emergencies, as well as accident related injuries that are older than 24 hours.

St John Ambulance Services are not fully government funded. Contracts with the Ministry of Health, ACC and District Health Boards fund nearly 80% of our Ambulance Service direct operating costs. The shortfall is made up from community donations, fundraising, revenue from our commercial activities, the contribution of our volunteers, as well as contributions from part charges.

We'd love to visit, maybe do a bike tour, and hope we don't have to test our health insurance or the effectiveness of St. John's. Spring has sprung here, you need to get on the N side of the equator for awhile!

Someday is not a day of the week.
