Augusta Margaret River Times - - NEWS -

Au­gusta’s St John Am­bu­lance sub-cen­tre of­fi­cers were hon­oured at a func­tion in Perth this month as fi­nal­ists in the sub-cen­tre of the year award.

Au­gusta vol­un­teers took part in the State con­fer­ence on Septem­ber 1 pro­vid­ing fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion and skills de­vel­op­ment, as well as net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Ad­di­tional hon­ours were heaped on Lor­raine Dusci, Bren­dan Jor­dan and Paul By­ers, who all re­ceived ser­vice recog­ni­tion awards.

“It was both a sur­prise and hon­our for the ded­i­cated Au­gusta vol­un­teers to be recog­nised by St John at a State level,” sub-cen­tre chair­woman Leisa Prangnell said.

St John has also in­stalled 24-hour ac­cess de­fib­ril­la­tors at the Au­gusta and Kar­ri­dale pri­mary schools, tak­ing the to­tal num­ber of de­fib­ril­la­tors do­nated for use around Au­gusta to 19.

The sub-cen­tre com­mit­tee is also work­ing hard to de­liver a new pa­tient trans­fer fa­cil­ity at the Au­gusta Airstrip to sup­port Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice pa­tients.

St John Am­bu­lance vol­un­teers, in­clud­ing Leisa Prangnell and Debby Thomp­son, cen­tre, were hon­oured for their hard work at a State con­fer­ence this month.
