THE DA is hugely proud of the incredible work done by EMS staff and district manager Brendan Methune. Our EMS personnel risk their lives to save our lives.
Despite non-compliance with national norms and standards of one ambulance per 10 000 people the Nelson Mandela Bay EMS team has performed beyond the call of duty. Their commitment to service sets an example that demonstrates that where there is a will, there is a way.
Congratulations guys, you show by example and performance that when resources are limited and the working environment threatens lives, it is possible to serve and serve well despite hardship. The DA salutes you and all department of health staff who walk the extra mile for our people.
This is an example of the transformative power of committed, caring staff. — Celeste Barker MPL, Shadow MEC for Health
