Mooloolah Lodge, in conjunction with a Dollar for Dollar Subsidy from Hand Heart Pocket the Charity of Freemasons Queensland, has donated over $2500 to the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) in Caloundra.
The funds were used to purchase a LAERDAL Resusci Baby with QCPR – a lifelike manikin of an infant which transmits real-time information to a computer to help paramedics hone their CPR skills.
Lodge Secretary Doug Wells said the Lodge was proud to fund such an innovative piece of equipment that will directly benefit the Sunshine Coast community.
“When responding to an emergency every second counts, so supporting our paramedics and making sure they have the latest training equipment is vital,” Doug said.
This is the third year Mooloolah Lodge has donated Laerdal equipment to the QAS at Caloundra.
