New base in Jeffrey's Bay

BY Relay EMS

The right location


RELAY EMS recently opened a base in Jeffrey’s Bay, a perfect location to serve the Kouga region, including Humansdorp, Kareedouw, St Francis Bay, Hankey and surrounds.


Operational Manager Richard Moodie gave more info about their latest extension.


“Opening a base in Jeffrey’s Bay was an easy business decision. Being a very popular holiday destination, Jeffrey’s Bay experiences incidents ranging from near-drownings to blue bottle stings. It tends to get quite busy around the beach and the Relay EMS base is ideally situated."


RELAY EMS is now fully operational in: Port Elizabeth, Uitenhage, The Kouga region (Jeffrey’s Bay, Humansdorp, Kareedouw, Hankey, Patensie, etc.)

The RELAY EMS teams have also assisted with a number of medical emergencies at residences.


The team all stay in the town and were quite happy when the Jeffrey’s Bay base opened as they used to work in PE with RELAY EMS. They are familiar with the Kouga area and are involved with the local community.


Emergency medical services outside of major metropolitan centres have its challenges. Although Humansdorp and Jeffrey’s Bay do have hospitals, the paramedic has a bigger responsibility to provide extended care throughout the process of stabilisation and transport.


At least one local Jeffrey’s Bay resident is alive today thanks to RELAY EMS’s quick response. The female victim nearly drowned and was treated on the scene before being transported to Humansdorp for further stabilisation. She was then transported to Port Elizabeth for further care. After spending some time in ICU, she made a full recovery after developing Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS).


Make sure RELAY EMS is there for you – save the emergency number now: 0861 061 061.
