Every minute counts at a traumatic incident, and those minutes are even more precious when medical services are hundreds of kilometres away in rural and regional Australia.

About the program

Nutrien Ag Solutions and CareFlight have launched a new partnership that will upskill regional communities with life-saving skills in 180 locations across Australia. 

The Emergency Trauma Training will deliver training that’s practical and targeted to those working in the agriculture industry. In 2023, the training was delivered to over 45 agricultural communities. In 2024 over 60 locations across regional and rural Australia will receive the training.

“The more people that have these skills in their toolbox, the more lives we can save.”

“I’m now more prepared to assist in a trauma situation.”

“It’s practical training that’s really targeted at our industry and line of work. Including how to utilise everyday items on hand like a seatbelt, bailing twine in the back of the ute or the shirt off your back when responding to an emergency.”
