In the event of a cardiac arrest, early access to a working defibrillator significantly increases the chance of survival, with the likelihood of a positive outcome reduced by 7-10% every minute defibrillation is delayed.
The defibrillator at Millers was no longer serviceable and in no condition to save lives. We gratefully acknowledge Knox City Council for a grant from the Minor Grant Program that has allowed the purchase of a new unit. Thank you to Tanya Parkins and Kristan Wood who identified this need and are still keeping a check on our facilities even when we’re not able to play football.
Thanks also to Karen Little and Kerryn Westcott for always assisting the Club with our Grants Program.
