Jeff Marriott did a first aid course with Kyogle Council earlier this month.
After using an AED – Automatic Electronic Defibrillator on the course, Jeff saw the need for a register of where these life saving machines were located in Kyogle.
He asked on Facebook who had an AED and is compiling a list.
So far he has these locations:
Kyogle High School
Kyogle Bowling Club
McKid Medical Centre
Anyone who knows where a defibrillator is located in Kyogle LGA can email Jeff at email@example.com
IndyNR.com will publish a permanent page of defibrillator locations once we have a comprehensive list.
So let us know for Richmond Valley too.
The list of locations in Richmond Valley so far include:
Council offices in Casino and Evans Head
Casino and Evans Head libraries
Casino Visitor Information Centre
For more locations that you know of in Richmond Valley email firstname.lastname@example.org
No training is required to operate a defibrillator as the machine speaks the instructions when you open it. All you have to do is follow what the AED says and you could save someone’s life.
