Enhancing the way organisations respond and adapt during times of crisis – so that they can retain control, reduce overwhelm, and gain a strategic advantage over their competition in an environment of potential chaos.
Dave helped save his first life when he was only 13, took part in nearly 4000 rescue helicopter missions and was part of New Zealand’s National Covid Response Team
Today he works globablly to help organisations be ready for any incident or crisis.
I was only 13 years old the first time I helped save a life by doing CPR on a stranger. While the adults around me either panicked or walked by without helping, I took action and also shouted orders at the adults – “Call 911”. “Keep those people back”, “Wave down the ambulance” – all while pumping this guy’s chest and giving him rescue breaths. Another stranger joined me and together we kept his blood flowing till the ambulance arrived and ‘shocked him’ with a defibrillator. It worked. He started breathing on his own.
It was a life-changing moment for him and for me.
That was the first of many lives I helped save. I went on to spend 25-years, where I was part of nearly 4000 missions, aboard a rescue helicopter based in Wellington, New Zealand.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, I was a Response Manager for New Zealand’s National Covid Response Team, working to minimise the risk to New Zealanders from the pandemic.
Today I help organisations manage incidents and crises by using strategies and frameworks that I have developed or learned during a life time of helping others overcome chaos and overwhelm.
Emergency Response is my story – it takes you along on my adventures, starting back in New York City and then on to some of the dramatic rescues I helped complete as a crew member on a rescue helicopter in New Zealand.
