At 08H 00 this morning, Western Cape Government Health Emergency Medical Services responded to a certification of death at Galway Court in Hanover Park. The EMS crew was caught in the crossfire between two rival gangs and damage was sustained to the EMS Ambulance. The EMS crew was fortunately not injured, but they did receive trauma counseling. Hanover Park has been identified as a red danger zone for EMS personnel and no EMS medical resources will be entering the area without a police escort. Please note that this will affect EMS response times considerably, but as per the department’s Kuseleka Staff Safety Campaign, the safety of our personnel is our first priority.
