CFA has announced the generous donation of $39400 from the Victorian Grain Growers in recognition of the work that CFA does to protect and serve the community.
These funds were raised through GrainCorp’s Grain Harvest Management Program across the 2016/17 season when nominated Field Command Vehicles will now be equipped with lifesaving defibrillators.
‘‘The recipients of 18 defibrillators will increase possible life-saving equipment available to communities,’’ assistant chief officer Ross Sullivan said.
The north-east region is home to some of the worst rates of cardio vascular disease in the state and these hard-working communities deserve every chance to prevent cardiac arrest fatalities.
Two of the defibrillators have been nominated to Homewood brigade and Terip Slip-on vehicles.
