The Birth of Triple One Care

André’s wealth of industry knowledge, and desire to improve first aid helped him identify the gap in first aid care specific to pre-hospital requirements. Triple One Care is the first of its kind in first aid, providing across-the-board industry solutions. Since its conception, André has entertained Prime Minister Helen Clark, scooped 4 awards in the Commerce Business Awards, including Best Business of the Year 2004, and has continued to receive glowing accolades from his clients for the service he and his company provide.
“…you’re dealing with people and their health and that’s important.”

Comments:

I enjoy what I do because it makes a positive difference to other people. A classic example:
A taxi driver takes his passenger to the police station because he won’t pay and he’s drunk. The Officer (who had recently completed a course) calls the ambulance because he identifies the Passenger had a stroke in the back of the taxi. True event -That’s a positive difference.
