St John and PowerNet working in the Southern Region




It’s been over five years since PowerNet began our life-saving partnership with St John, bringing first-aid training to people across the Southern Region and raising awareness about health and safety.


We are pleased to extend our successful community partnership supporting first-aid training and health and safety in the south to include areas in Otago and the Catlins.

PowerNet’s core focus is safety – safety of the public and safety of the people who work on our networks. St John is a very respected organisation, and their ideas of safety, reliability and security are exactly the same as PowerNet’s.

The PowerNet/St John partnership continues to focus on key safety messages and first-aid training and will expand over the life of the partnership to other programmes that will help the communities we serve. The synergy in this partnership will use our combined resources to build safety and education promotion for our customers and the community.

Working with our communities is important to us. With St John we can get out our core safety messages and support their excellent work at the same time.
