ANZBA has been monitoring the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).
We have decided to cancel all Australian & New Zealand EMSB courses, events and face-to-face meetings for March, April, May & June.
At our May Board meeting we will reassess the situation for courses held from July onwards and will provide additional updates.
We felt it necessary to take this step given the unfolding situation in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our priority is the health and safety of our Burns staff.
We are complying with advice and instruction from our governments and local hospital protocols restricting flights and meetings.
We face challenging times ahead, but we are doing everything we can to ensure that we keep the welfare of our many stakeholders at the forefront of what we do. We will keep you updated as we find out more.
Keep safe and thank you for your patience and understanding.
For more information:
If you are travelling please check your insurance cover carefully. Many insurers have exemptions for infectious diseases and pandemics, but the policies are different for each insurer.
We are hoping to reschedule courses later in the year and can offer a free transfer to another course to replace those being cancelled. If you would like a refund, please let us know.
