Defibrillators donated for Whittlesea township

Popular Stories

Whittlesea community groups have donated two defibrillators for the greater good of the Whittlesea community.

Both defibrillators will be situated in Whittlesea, one at the community garden, beside the library in Laurel Street, and the other in Church Street, operating 24 hours a day, with its exact location to be announced soon.

Funding the defibrilators was shared between Whittlesea Rotary, Whittlesea Lions, Whittlesea Jumbunna Country Women’s Association and Whittlesea Community Garden, as well as a substantial donation from the proceeds of a raffle by the geocaching community at their mega event in Whittlesea last year.

Darren Mannix, a member of the geocaching community, supplied the defibrillators at a reduced price through his company Healthguard First Aid, and delivered a one-hour training session on the equipment to members of the groups.

Whittlesea Rotary is currently completing a stocktake of defibrillators within the Whittlesea area to ensure all are registered with Ambulance Victoria and maintained.

Over the years, the Rotary and Lions clubs in Whittlesea have jointly funded many defibrillators to sport clubs, schools and individuals.
