New face at CSU

share in his new role with Charles Sturt University
(CSU) in Port Macquarie.

paramedicine, Mr Ebbs worked as a paramedic and
manager across Sydney and regional NSW,
attaining the rank of Superintendent and recently

Incident Management Teams for a number of
operations, including the Lindt Cafe siege and the
recent Hunter storms.
Mr Ebbs said he's looking forward to the
challenges and opportunities of his new role on the
Mid-North Coast.
"As part of the School of Biomedical Sciences I'll
be supporting paramedics and managers in
Australia and internationally as the profession
meets new challenges associated with a changing
scope of paramedic practice, new opportunities in
health technology, national registration for
paramedics, and increased requirements to work
seamlessly with health and emergency service
partners,” he said.

sub-acute care programs across regional NSW,
particularly in the Hunter and Mid-North Coast.
