ASM

Mr Peter James CRIBBS, Shell Cove NSW 2529
Mr Peter Cribbs joined NSW Ambulance in 1981 and qualified as a member of the Special Casualty Access Team (SCAT). 

He was one of two first NSW Ambulance paramedic responders to the first Bali bombing. He worked with a doctor to retrieve 25 injured persons and accompanied them on a Qantas repatriation flight to Australia, triaging and treating patients mid-air for the entire flight.

He was the primary responder to other emergencies including the Lake Cargelligo water tower collapse, the Jamberoo bus crash, the Brooklyn rail disaster, the 1993 Linden bus accident, the 1997 Thredbo landslide, and the 2006 Indonesian earthquake disaster. He was the only paramedic member of the Australian Medical Team responding to the Yogjakarta region, working under the umbrella of an active volcano with many aftershocks following the initial earthquake.

He was also a SCAT team leader for the Special Operations Team during the Victorian Bushfires 2009, and again at the Christchurch earthquake in 2011, both searching for, and treating, survivors.

He was key to introducing the MIST reporting system and Code 3 (doctor/team to meet the ambulance on arrival at hospital) by introducing ambulance radios to emergency departments and writing the definition of a Code 3 and MIST for NSW Ambulance and hospital emergency departments. He also initiated and evaluated the stretcher policy trialled at Liverpool Hospital which lead to the introduction of the Ambulance Release Teams, and he designed and wrote the first electronic rosters for NSW Ambulance.

Mr Cribbs has provided dedicated and committed service to NSW Ambulance, and to the wider community, throughout his more than 40 year career.
