Would you know how to save a life?
Rotary Matamata are taking it on themselves to possibly save a life in our community.
The service club have begun to sell savealife capsules.
The capsules, which can be attached to a keyring, contain an aspirin, which if administered may give a heart attack victim extra time.
‘‘We believe that anything which can better increase someone’s chances of surviving a heart attack has to be beneficial not just for the individual but for their family and the community as a whole,’’ Rotary Matamata president David Hulme said.
The savealife programme is supported and recommended by leading New Zealand cardiologists.
Savealife capsules cost $4, with proceeds from sales going back to Rotary projects.
‘‘They would make great stocking fillers with Christmas coming up and several local businesses have already come on board, purchasing them to give to staff and customers,’’ David said.
