Men’s health emer­gency

Gat­ton’s am­bos, hos­pi­tal staff and firies growamo

Gatton Star - - News -

MOVEM­BER is al­most here and soon Mos of all shapes and sizes will take up res­i­dence on the faces of our emer­gency ser­vices.

So far, the Mo team is made up of mem­bers of the Gat­ton Am­bu­lance, Gat­ton Hos­pi­tal and the Ru­ral Fire Ser­vice.

Team cap­tain and ad­vanced care para­medic Cameron An­der­son said they were call­ing on any other mem­bers of the emer­gency ser­vices to join – es­pe­cially some po­lice of­fi­cers – to round up the team.

“Movem­ber is one of those causes that I have al­ways sup­ported but never ac­tu­ally par­tic­i­pated in,” he said.

“We have ded­i­cated our ca­reers to help­ing the com­mu­nity and this is a slightly dif­fer­ent way we can work to­gether to do the same thing.

“We feel that as an emer­gency ser­vices fam­ily, we can make a dif­fer­ence that reaches a com­mu­nity broader than that of Gat­ton alone.”

He said it was also an op­por­tu­nity to de­velop closer bonds within the emer­gency ser­vices fam­ily.

“Who knows who will need the help later on,” he said.

Movem­ber raises money for men’s men­tal health, as well as prostate and tes­tic­u­lar can­cer aware­ness. You can do­nate or join the team by vis­it­ing http://moteam.co/gat­ton -emer­gency-ser­vices or drop a few coins in one of the dona­tion tins around town.
