Woodgate farewells a fab four

Isis Town and Country - - News -

WOODGATE First Re­spon­ders farewelled 38 years of ex­pe­ri­ence with a morn­ing tea to recog­nise the ser­vice of four women.

Cris­tine Yates, Mar­garet Fan­ning, Jac­qui Lonie and Janette El­son marked their fi­nal day on April 8, with all four re­ceiv­ing cer­tifi­cates of ap­pre­ci­a­tion.

First Re­spon­der John Bellerby said all four’s con­tri­bu­tion would be missed. “They’ve had a fair stint and we felt we should do some­thing to hon­our them,” he said.

The func­tion to farewell the four dou­bled as an op­por­tu­nity to in­tro­duce $6000 worth of new tech­nol­ogy to the re­gion.

“The man­nequin is sig­nif­i­cant for us. It’s some­thing we can show the com­mu­nity what we do with money from fundrais­ing and can even­tu­ally use it to train lo­cals,” John said.

The man­nequin gives im­me­di­ate feed­back on com­pres­sion depth and fre­quency, which gives more ac­cu­rate train­ing.
