Ambulance Committee offer First Aid courses

The Local Ambulance Committee are considering offering fully funded First Aid courses to local community sporting groups and clubs, as well as other community-minded individuals in the area.

The aim is to increase the number of local, trained first aid people in our area, ready to respond in the event of an emergency. Training will be provided by an accredited Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) trainer and will provide participants with a recognised First Aid certificate.

Depending on the community’s response, the course will run for eight hours and will be conducted mid-September on a Saturday.

At this stage, the local Ambulance Committee are seeking expressions of interest from people who are willing to make a firm commitment to participate in the training.

CPR Training is included in the course and those who only require this component will be able to be accommodated.

If you are interested in attending this course, please send your name and contact details to Cheryl Zunic via email: josephandcheryl@bigpond.com.
