St John And PowerNet In The Southern Region
POWERNET AND ST JOHN – WORKING TOGETHER IN THE SOUTHERN REGION
Our initial three-year partnership, which began in August 2014, is aimed at improving public safety and first aid education.
PowerNet’s core focus is safety – safety of the public and safety of the people who work on our networks. St John is a very respected organisation, and their ideals of safety, reliability and security are exactly the same as PowerNets.
The PowerNet/St John partnership will initially focus on key safety messages and first aid training and expand over the life of the partnership to other programmes that will help the communities we serve. The synergy in this partnership will use our combined resources to build safety and education promotion for our customers and the community.
St John have excellent networks and education programmes in Southland, and we will work with them to get both our safety messages out there.
Working with our communities is important to us. With St John we can get out our core safety messages and support their excellent work at the same time.
All PowerNet staff hold a first aid qualification. If you want more information on the first aid and refresher courses St John offers, visit www.stjohn.org.nz to find out more.
