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.
