Woodgate farewells a fab four
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.
