New defibrillator to add peace of mind at Shoppingworld

DALBY Shoppingworld has added a new piece of equipment to the centre, to maintain the safety of patrons and staff.

A defibrillator has been installed near the centre management office, in the event of a medical episode.

The machine was added at the centre, after staff at the centre participated in their yearly first-aid course.

Dalby Shoppingworld marketing manager, Melanie Koch said the new addition was to increase the chances of survival if the equipment was needed.

"The defibrillator is for the benefit and safety of everyone in the centre,” she said.

"We have it outside the office so everyone can have access to it in case of an emergency.

"CPR must be done while using the defibrillator,.”

Ms Koch said the machine could be used by anybody in the centre and the instructions can be found on the defibrillator.

She said if anyone ever had to use it, following the instructions and phoning triple-0 should be done.
