We are pleased to announce that through dedicated fundraising efforts from the Veterans part of the club and generous individual donations, the club has been able to purchase two Defib units in recent weeks. One has already been at Lemnos Turf for some time.
The units are located at:
TREGONNING – EASTERN END OF BAR ON WALL NEAR WATER COOLER
MELVISTA – INSIDE KITCHEN NORTH EAST WALL
These units are also registered with the St John Ambulance Community First Responder Program. When a person unexpectedly collapses due to a cardiac arrest, bystanders may not know if there is a defibrillator close by. Organisations that are part of the St John Community First Responder program have their defibrillator location and a contact person registered with St John Ambulance. This helps a defibrillator to be retrieved as soon as possible and applied to the patient in the time critical period before an ambulance arrives.
