Paul was the Operations Director at IPSS Medical Rescue for many years before taking up his most recent position as Director of Medi Response KZN, where he oversaw the brand’s expansion in the province. Paul has had an impressive career saving lives as an advanced life-support paramedic on the front lines of accident scenes, natural disasters, and war zones.

He was a regular on Radio Life & Style, providing the community with important updates and reliable information whenever disaster struck on the North Coast and elsewhere, from the KZN riots in 2021 and floods in 2022 to reports from the scenes of global disasters like the hurricane-ravaged Beira in Mozambique and the recent earthquakes in Turkey.

Herbst travelled to help Turkey and Syria in the wake of the devastating earthquake that left thousands of people dead or missing as part of the Medi Response team working under the Gift of The Givers banner.

Imtiaz Sooliman, the director of Gift of the Givers, has expressed his sincere sympathies to Paul Herbst’s family.
