There was a callout to help a person trapped at SkyCity shortly before 6.30am on Tuesday. Another two people were trapped in a lift in a block of apartments on Symonds St on Monday and one person became trapped in a lift in a home on Almorah Rd in Epsom. Tips on surviving the Big Day Out Thousands of party-goers are expected to flock to the 2011 Big Day Out today and St John is pro- viding tips to survive the experi- ence. The ambulance service worked flat out last year to treat 1415 people and transport 15 to hos- pital. Sixty percent of the workload was attending to headaches and blisters and those taken to hos- pital suffered from drug over- doses, chest pains, neck injuries and fractures. Ambulance staff warn that sun, heat exhaustion, alcohol and drugs mixed together can makes things a lot worse for a patient. Tips to get through the day include: Keeping skin covered to protect from sunburn. Once it has occurred there is no useful treat- ment to reduce the burn or take away the damage. Creams can be used provided there is not severe blistering Drinking plenty of water to avoid heat exhaustion. This is usually caused by exposure to extreme temperatures and by not replacing fluid lost through sweating. You can help a person with heat exhaustion by getting them to rest in a cool place and providing fluid to drink Knowing what to do if a person has alcohol poisoning. This occurs most commonly in young people who drink undiluted spirits very quickly. If you suspect a person has alcohol poisoning shake their shoulder and shout at them. If they wake they are not uncon- scious but will need someone to stay with them. If they do not respond to a shake and shout, lay them on their side, arrange medi- cal attention and stay with them. Remove vomit if it blocks the front of the mouth Knowing what to do if a person has drug poisoning. This is any substance that can cause damage to the body and can include medicines or illicit drugs. Symptoms of poisoning include an altered level of consciousness, stomach pain, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, seizures, breathing dif- ficulty and altered behaviour. Ensure that you and other people helping the patient are not in danger. Do not try to make the person vomit and do not give them anything to drink. If they are unconscious, place them on their side and seek help. More than 150 St John volunteers will be on hand on the day. Cottage to become cafe/deli The revamped careta- ker s cottage in Victoria Park finally has a likely tenant to make use of the building. The Waitemata Local Board accepted a rec- ommendation to lease the cottage to a group that will provide a cafe and deli known as the the Green Keeper. The former Auckland City Council spent $140,000 on refurbishing the cottage s exterior last year but couldn t find a tenant before the local body election in October. Work involved repil- ing, replacing and repairing missing archi- tectural features, paint- ing the exterior, landscaping and the removal of a garage and fencing. The new tenant will restore the interior. Waitemata Local Board member Greg Moyle says it s a relief to have some certainty over the cottage s future. We also wanted to conserve some history.
