The Local Ambulance Committee (LAC) is once again considering offering fully funded first aid courses to community groups and clubs, as well as other community-minded individuals in the Cooloola Coast area.
The aim of this initiative is to increase the pool of trained first aid people in the area 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 be conducted on a Saturday in early August and will run for eight hours. At this stage, we 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 people 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 by email to Cheryl Zunic at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The LAC will also be holding their annual Ambulance Flower Show on Saturday, 30 September at the Tin Can Bay Community Hall. The show is an important fundraiser for our local ambulance service. So please start giving some thought to your entries and we will look forward to displaying your lovely flowers and plants.
