Moranbah State School are now the proud owners of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) thanks to Westfund Health Insurance’s Here for Hearts Schools Program.
The Program is a partnership between Westfund and the Defibshop which is designed to save lives by increasing awareness of sudden Cardiac Arrest and the importance of defibrillators in the community.
Westfund partners with Defibshop to deliver the program, which aims to subsidise AED purchases for schools across Westfund’s Care Centre areas locations throughout NSW and Queensland.
Moranbah State School’s AED was presented at the school’s weekly parade on Thursday 31 August by Regional Manager Erica Fredericksen.
On hand to receive the Defib on behalf of the school was Moranbah State School secretary Kylie Otago.
The AED will now be secured in an easily accessible place and will provide peace of mind for the entire school community.
“I’m thrilled that Westfund, in collaboration with the Defibshop, is able to assist Moranbah State School in securing such an important piece of equipment that may one day save a life,” said Mrs Fredericksen.
