Paramedics project off to a shaky start

An initiative launched by MEC of Health in the Western Cape Theuns Botha and Community Safety MEC Dan Plato has started off on a disappointing note.

The project has to do with members of neighbourhood watches in Khayelitsha accompanying paramedics to call-outs to ensure their safety.

The initiative was launched following several attacks on paramedics in the Khayelitisha area.

It is alleged that some paramedics were not informed about the project.

MEC Botha’s spokesperson Hélène Rossouw said the reason why paramedics were not aware of the project was because it was still a pilot project. 

Rossouw added that the paramedics will be briefed next week and given the necessary equipments.
