Standards Australia have now released a new standard on planning for emergencies. AS4083 – 2010 Planning for emergencies – Health Care Facilities. The Australian College of Ambulance Professionals is a committee member involved in the process of this standard.  National Director John Hall was the ACAP representative and states “this is a very well produced document and should serve as the standard for many years to come.  Paramedics should be interested in the document for our involvement in evacuation and other emergencies that occur in health care facilities”

The Standard is now available at ACAP will continue its involvement with Standards Australia on other projects.
