Defibrillator installed in Wellington Caves area
WELLINGTON LIONS are pleased to announce that they have donated a defibrillator (AED) for use for the general public in the Wellington Caves area. It was installed by George Chapman of The Australian Red Cross who had been installing them in Dubbo and now wishes to see them in Wellington.
These machines are the only thing that can restart a person’s heart after a cardiac arrest – one of those installed in Dubbo has already saved a life.
It is very easy to use, you just listen to the instructions and it will not deliver a shock if it is not needed.
Several Lions were at the installation which is on the veranda wall of the Caves Complex Caravan Park Caretaker’s Cottage – where all people can get to it at all hours.
They then listened to its instructions and had a relaxing cuppa afterwards hoping it is never needed.
