Auxiliary gift to school
A DEFIBRILLATOR has been installed at Inglewood Primary School.
Donated by the town’s Ambulance Auxiliary Op-Shop, the unit has been installed at the school’s external foyer location to allow 24-hour access.
School council treasurer Stewart Luckman welcomed the auxiliary’s donation.
“We would like to acknowledge the Inglewood Op Shop Ambulance Auxiliary for the hard work, commitment and generous support of their local community by donating automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) throughout the community,” he said.
“AEDs are essential when it comes to saving a life during a cardiac arrest when every minute counts. If a AED is available it is vital that it can be used reliably and quickly by the user.
“The sooner the casualty receives AED the greater their chance of survival in the life-threatening situation of cardiac arrest,” he said.
School staff and senior students will be trained in use of the AED in case of an emergency.
