The Cooloola Coast Local Ambulance Committee is keen to ensure that members of our local community keep as safe as possible in 2017. We have purchased a number of items providing advice and helpful hints on a range of safety issues. For the cost of a gold coin donation, you can obtain the following:
Medical Information Booklets to record your personal and medical information so that it is ready for use in an emergency.
First Aid Handy Hints booklets which cover a wide range of topics from how to deal with heart attacks to treatment for bites and stings.
Button Battery Aware magnets which give advice on what action is to be taken if a battery is swallowed by a child.
Heat Stress Flyers (very appropriate at present) on ways to prevent heat related illness.
These items are available at both the Rainbow Beach and Tin Can Bay libraries and some retail outlets.
We also have a supply of CPR Pool Safety Charts which are mandatory for pool owners. These can be obtained from Caroline Taylor (0428 863 161) or Cheryl Zunic (54868070).
A major part of our fundraising activities is the weekly bingo session held every Thursday morning at 9.30am at the Tin Can Bay Country Club. So get some friends together and come along to have some fun and help support your local Ambulance Service.
