About the Witbank SACCW EMT volunteers

We have established the Emergency Response Team (ERT) in March 2015. The focus of this team is to assist the community and all emergency services with qualified personnel, that is registered with different professional bodies, such as the Health Professional Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and South Africa Emergency Services Institute (SAESI). We also have more than 40-years experience in our fields of expertise.

Our team consists of:

  • Paramedics / Medics that range from Advance Life Supports (ALS/Ndip), Intermediate, Basic and first aid
  • Fire fighters with FF1 & FF2, Hazmat, Rescue
  • First Responders with Rope Rescue, Vehicle Rescue and Fire rescue
  • Divers, instructors and rescue diving

More about us

Currently, we serve as backup resources to the majority of the emergency services in eMalahleni (Witbank) that includes Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and the Fire Department. In the near future we will look at the possibility of going to render a service with our own equipment and register emergency vehicles to assist faster and more proactive services to all in and around our area of operations.
