Kokoda Crossing are one of a handful of trekking companies who keep you safe by engaging a dedicated doctor or paramedic on all treks.
We not only look after those trekkers who may fall ill or get injured, but we also take care of our porter team and those villagers we come across that need acute medical care.
We have formed an alliance with Austere Risk Management who provide a multitude of risk management services:
*Trekking / expeditions.
*Disaster and humanitarian efforts.
*Remote TV and film.
*Mobile apps for data/information management.
In this video we talk with Nathan Burns from beautiful Akaroa on the east coast of Tasmania.
Nathan trekked with us in August 2019 as the designated trek paramedic.
He founded Austere Risk Management as well as Backpacker Medics, a volunteer organisation which provides medical services to disaster zones around the world.
