    Welcome to the volly room

    Spanners has set this area up for the volunteers to talk about what they do, the highlights of the organization you belong to, the experiences you have had, show off, support each other and general chit chat.

    All volunteers are welcome whether it be Fire, Ambo, SAR, Meals on Wheels etc. No seniority, no rank.

    Please respect peoples right to privacy by not releasing confidential information or photos.

    Non volunteers are also welcome to contribute

    Did 5 years of volunteer ambulance back in South Africa, got up Intermediate Life Support, and Basic Medical Rescue (spreaders, jaws, steep slope)

    In NZ I am currently doing shifts at Citizens Advice Bureau, as well as ranger / cruise ship tour guide / operations for a fenced conservation sanctuary.

    It doesn't matter what you do as long as you do community penance of some form and help people. I also do CAB working as a JP . Your not a Hero just someone who gives a Fcuk (sorry) not quite becoming of me

    SAR on coromandel for about 3 1/2 years.
    Yes it is a pain in the butt when your phone goes at 2am cos some pig hunter/tramper or whatever has come unstuck, but i love it. Great way to learn new skls while putting something back into your comunity. We get stuff all call outs compared to some groups so it can be hard to stay focused
