Defibrillators now in Greenmount, Nobby

Recent stories

The community is much safer thanks to the tireless efforts of the Clifton Local Ambulance Committee (LAC), which has installed automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in Greenmount and Nobby.

Anne Glasheen, President of Clifton LAC, said the defibrillators have been paid for by not-for-profit organisations and businesses.

The outgoing Clifton Meals on Wheels committee paid for the AED at the Nobby Store (outside, under awning).

At Greenmount, one has been placed at the Get Chopped Greenmount Pub and was supported by Nutrien Harcourts Clifton owners Ian and Kellie Brady.

It is in the outside area near the rear door.

“All the AEDs will be registered with the Queensland Ambulance Greenmount resident and member of the Clifton LAC Nina Buttsworth with the defibrillator at Get Chopped Pub. Service,” Mrs Glasheen said.

“They are also tracked if need be.

“We ask the communities to be aware of them and if need be, to protect them from any damage.”

There have also been AEDs installed in Leyburn, Pilton, Allora and two in Clifton.

The one in Pilton can be found in the porch area of the Pilton Hall.

Mrs Glasheen said the Clifton LAC has been working on this project for a couple of years.

“The Clifton LAC will now be fundraising for the upkeep of these units,” she said.

“The Clifton LAC will be running CPR Training in these communities in the coming months and also we sell first aid kits and snake bite kits.

“Please see us at the Clifton Show.”
