“Go on, do something different — volunteer for your Local Ambulance Committee (LAC ), “ urges LAC President Rae. With about 145 active committees boasting more than 1300 members across Queensland LAC volunteering is on the rise.

“Attached to ambulance stations of all sizes and in many locations, LACs provide a direct link to the community. From fundraising to purchase additional resources for paramedics, to raising awareness of ambulance services through community engagement, LACs are an important part of the Ambulance service,” said Rae. LACs also deliver vital community safety training sessions through the CPR Awareness program where community members learn CPR for a gold coin donation in just 90 minutes.

So if you would like to learn how to perform CPR and then teach others or perhaps obtain First Aid skills and then teach school children or if you have an interest in supporting QAS in our community then this is for you suggests Rae. She says whilst not as a rule required, a medical background of some type or administration skills may be an advantage. For further information please call President Rae on 0416 023 818.
