The Queensland Ambulance Service is urging residents to take a few minutes to download the Emergency+ smartphone app.
Calling Triple Zero (000) can be very confronting when faced with a seriously injured person. More stress can be added to the situation if the caller is in an unfamiliar area.
With this app, you will be able to give emergency services your exact location and ensure that help is sent to the right place in the fastest possible time.
By taking time to download the Emergency+ app now, critical time could be saved in an emergency. The Emergency+ app is available free of charge from iTunes, Google Play and Windows stores.
The Cooloola Coast Local Ambulance Committee is planning to hold their annual Flower Show on October 1 at the Tin Can Bay Community Hall. An important fundraiser, it gives the community an opportunity to show their support for the ambulance officers.
So please start tending those plants and flowers and become part of a very worthwhile and enjoyable day.
There will be a photography competition as well as stalls and morning and afternoon teas. Entry forms will be available from August at the libraries and some retail outlets.
