Dion Neill established Medic 1 to meet demands for skilled, qualified and experienced medics, not just a volunteer with a first aid certificate.
Medic 1 provides skilled, qualified and front line experienced medics in the Wellington, Manawatu and Wairarapa regions for a number of events; we also facilitate the first aid and paramedical requirements for venues, sports games, school galas, community fairs, television commercials, film productions, or any occasion that may require first aid and medical services.
We are equipped with emergency care equipment, including a defibrillator. A number of events benefit from our bike (bicycle) response team. Many events don't allow for vehicles due to crowds or limited access, this is where our medics on bikes are utilised. We can quickly reach an incident, assess the situation and provide treatment until the arrival of other resources.
Dion Neill, our founder is a GoodSAM responder. He is a former member of the New Zealand defence forces and a qualified ambulance officer for 10 years with the Wellington Free Ambulance. Dion was also a St John volunteer for over 30 years and held a number of senior leadership positions.
Dion was contracted as a security-medic in a number of the world's most volatile regions, including South Africa. By choosing Medic 1 as your first aid and event medical services provider, you can be confident that your medical requirements are in very safe hands.
What do we charge? Our rates are highly competitive and vary depending on the duration of your event or assignment. Medic 1 are proud to pay it forward by supporting our community. Please ask us about our special rates for schools, sports clubs, charities and non-profit organisations.
Qualified medics to minimise your risk!
