Wellington Free Ambulance offers Easter safety tips With the Easter break coming up, it is important to be proactive and prepared in keeping yourself safe and well. As people head out of the city to enjoy a long weekend elsewhere, traffic on the roads increases, along with risk. Wellington Free Ambulance paramedic Amanda Johnston says she often sees drivers getting frustrated behind the wheel and driving too fast during the busy Easter break. “A lack of patience on the road means drivers are too eager to overtake and do so when they don’t have a good visual of the road ahead. This causes a lot of crashes and head-on collisions.” Amanda emphasises the importance of using your seatbelts, appropriate child seats, and taking regular rest breaks to manage fatigue. “It’s about doing your part to ensure you’re driving

safely, whilst being aware of those driving around you.” Off the road, if you’re planning an Easter egg hunt for your children, Amanda says it’s best to be careful when choosing the location. “Keep away from roads and stay away from obstacles where children have the potential to injure themselves.” GP services will have limited availability over the Easter break, so being organised is key. Amanda says “Make sure you’re up to date with your prescriptions. “If you feel unwell before the Easter break, make sure you visit your GP in plenty of time. “If you need medical advice during the break, there will be selected pharmacies open, and Healthline is an excellent service that is just a phone call away. If you need an ambulance call 111”.  Healthline: 0800 611 116
