St John and lines company PowerNet have a three-year partnership promoting and teaching first aid to Southland communities.

PowerNet chief executive Jason Franklin said the synergy between both organisations made the partnership an obvious choice.

“PowerNet’s core focus is safety – safety of the public and safety of the people who work on our networks.  We have had contact with St John at incidents – such as a car versus a power pole - they attend as first responders.  This partnership will use our combined resources to build safety and education promotion for our customers."

Jason said the relationship was focused on safety through education in the first stage, and would develop further over the three years.

“We are delighted that we have a partnership that benefits both parties to reach our particular goals.  St John is a very respected organisation, and their ideals of safety, reliability and security are exactly the same as PowerNet’s.”
