Ambulance Committee welcomes new members

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of this Local Ambulance Committee will be held at the Cooloola Coast Ambulance Station TIN CAN BAY on Thursday August 20, at 3.30pm.

The purpose of the AGM is to present the committee’s annual reports, financial statements and budget proposals. Local Ambulance Committees act as a voice for their community, providing valuable feedback on ambulance service delivery.

The Biennial General Meeting (BGM) will be held immediately after the close of the AGM.  The purpose of the BGM is to elect new members to the Local Ambulance Committee. All eligible persons are encouraged to attend.

If you are interested in being a member of the LAC you must be:

  • Eighteen [18] years or over
  • A permanent resident of the area serviced by the Cooloola Coast Ambulance Station, or
  • A permanent resident of Queensland who works in the area serviced by the Cooloola Coast Ambulance Station.

The Queensland Ambulance Service will celebrate Ambulance Week from September 4 to 11. To commemorate the event, the OIC of the Cooloola Coast Ambulance Service would like to advise that there will be an open day and sausage sizzle at the Tin Can Bay Station on Thursday, September 10 from 10am to 1pm.

The public are invited to come along and meet our dedicated local ambulance officers. The day will be used to promote medical readiness during significant events, to stress the importance of calling 000 in an emergency and to raise awareness of the CPR program which will be rolled out over the coming months.

The paramedics will also be on hand to answer any general health enquiries and to provide an insight into their professional activities.

It will be a great opportunity for the community to show their support for our Ambulance Service, so please come along and say ‘hello’.
