From Gary Sylvaney
Two years ago, I raised with the then Hall Committee the need to provide an on-site defibrillator at the Community Centre.
Our village populations median age is 59 yrs. (Median means having equal numbers above and below this number). Of course, heart failure for example can occur at much younger ages but can be expected to show an increasing risk as we age. Given our demographic, a defibrillator must be considered a critical piece of life-saving equipment
Two Ambulance Stations are listed as servicing North Arm Cove, Tea Gardens,19 klms. and Buladelah, 37 klms...
