“It’s 36 degrees and 35 per cent humidity, so the biggest challenge is trying to stay cool in all the PPE.”
Take a peak behind the scenes at our Northern Territory base and see what it’s been like for our frontline crews during the COVID-19 pandemic. Wearing PPE in soaring temperatures isn’t easy, whether you are a pilot or a nurse.
CareFlight Pilot Andre explains: “It can be tough wearing PPE in a small aircraft space…it’s certainly good for building personal resilience and character!” A huge thank you to all our team for their continued dedication in these trying conditions!
A job well done to our crews for their continued dedication in these extremely trying times. Thank you to all frontline workers working tirelessly to improve patient outcomes and keep us safe.
