On campus the highest level of medical safety will be offered. All staff including teachers from visiting schools are to be trained in up-to-date first aid. Any Culture College staff operating in the field will be required to hold wilderness first aid or the equivalent and detailed medical histories will be required for each participant.
Nhulunbuy district hospital is located 5 minutes from Base Camp. It has 32 beds and an Accident & Emergency ward and can also organise the evacuation of patients via Air Medical Services (AMS) to Royal Darwin Hospital (RDH) if required.
All Homelands partnering with Culture College have an airstrip and have created a medical evacuation plan with us.
