Support your local ambulance service

Many people will be travelling away over the coming holidays, as well as during the popular winter touring period. If you are travelling, or are in an unfamiliar location, and have to call for emergency help, it can be hard to know exactly where to direct the emergency services.

A helpful tool for dealing with emergency situations is the Emergency + app. This app provides your phone’s GPS coordinates so you can give the Emergency Dispatcher your exact location and help the ambulance find you.

It also gives you all the important phone numbers to call in emergency and non-emergency situations. The Emergency + app is free to download from Google play, the App Store and Windows Store.

Another successful bingo morning was held last month in Rainbow Beach. A good crowd turned up and enjoyed a fun time. The next session will be held on Monday, April 2 at the same venue, the Rainbow Beach Community Hall commencing at 9.30am.

The bingo mornings will continue to be offered on the first Monday of each month if there is an ongoing level of support.

And a reminder that weekly bingo sessions are held every Thursday morning at 9.30am at the Tin Can Bay Country Club. So please come along and help support your local ambulance service.
