A fun night with these guys learning on mannequins how to perform CPR - a great exercise and some good knowledge gained.
We are hoping to run further courses in the New Year, and involve our fabulous Fire Brigade again. Thanks to Kierin and his team for sharing their knowledge and wonderful patience with their coaching.
The new AED - is installed at the Lake Okareka Community Hall, just to the left of the entry to the Hall. This one is also set up for children, if required.
To access this AED, dial 111 - (as per your first instructions with CPR) and the details are explained to you. This AED has been registered on the AED locator website as well.
Much to share and learn - and we look forward to giving more of you this valuable knowledge in the future. We are lucky to now have three AED units at the Lake.
