“Here is some festive noteworthy news . Mondi Emergency staff with Trackbox supported a Snakebite victim with our emergency protocols. “ We saved a life.” This incident was on SABC news, News24, Witness all local media.” – Ingrid, Mondi Pietermaritzburg

“A short description of the incident
On Christmas Eve I received a report of a women who had been bitten by a snake. A couple were doing a day hike on the Blinkwater hiking Trail near New Hanover. The couple had signed in on the Seven Oaks side and were given a map of the trail with the relevant emergency numbers.
They later contacted Greytown Golf 911 saying that the wife had been bitten by a snake. As we were not sure of their exact location search parties were dispatched from Seven Oaks, and I responded from the New Hanover side. On my way I activated Trackbox, they were simply amazing. It was difficult due to poor cell phone reception, but we found them on a road below some indigenous bush.
Daniel, my son, and I immediately applied first aid. The wife was in a lot of pain but we were easily able to ascertain the type of snake that had bitten her, a puff adder. An hour and a half had passed since the incident occurred. We loaded them into my van and met the paramedic using the Trackbox app, at the New Hanover Garage. He began treatment and immediately noted the severity of the patient and called for a helicopter.
The patient was airlifted to St Anne’s and spent 5 days in ICU. She has since been discharged.” – Steve, Senior Silviculture Forester, Mondi Greytown
“I applaud you & Daniel for the excellent matter in which you supported the Snake bitten victim “You make Mondi” please pass my office to acknowledge and celebrate you saving a life. Thank you. This is what we daily endeavour to do “ Home Safe everybody everyday” even for our visitors.
Thank you for all that you have done in the spirit of Ubuntu . #ImStaying” – Ingrid, Mondi Pietermaritzburg
A message from Brian Jones:
“THANK YOU to role-players that collaborated, each doing their bit. The results speak for themselves. The Code Red – Air Support project in collaboration with Netcare 911 since its launch in December 2018 has flown over 380 missions in its first year in KZN. Countless lives have been saved by teamwork and the AAA-Response (TrackBox) Platform.
This year we are concentrating heavily on the VCAT-7 Operative Air Support Button which will place the helicopter support needed in serious situations such as this in the hands of first responders who need it most, when every second counts.
