Kiandra wildflowerYou can make a difference...

As with any place with a small population, there's always more that could be done and not many people to do it.

So if it's not all happening the way you'd like - get in and have a go. You could make Adaminaby, Shannons Flat or Anglers Reach a better place for everyone!

It's our district & its future is in our hands.

We're told that the old town had a strong spirit of sharing, of belonging, of true community. That's a heritage to value. It's also a vision for our future.

Eucumbene Villages Now Have DefibrillatorsSquare Body Only Simple 300x254

A Defibrillator (or Automatic External Defibrillator - AED) can save a life! The Good News is that ANYONE can use one. The Defibrillator will guide you each step of the way.

Both Lakeside Village at Anglers Reach and Rainbow Pines Caravan Park at Old Adaminaby now have a defibrillator available. When needed, grab the unit and follow the directions. Call 000 as soon as you can and keep following the directions given by the unit.

To find the nearest available defibrillator check St John Ambulance Defibrillator Location Map. There are apps to help you find the nearest available defibrillator.  Be prepared - install one suitable for your mobile device today.
NOTE that not all automatic electronic defibrillators have registered locations.

FAQs (from Defibrillator FAQs at St John Ambulance of Australia website)

Q: Who can use a defibrillator?
A: ANYONE can use a defibrillator – the unit will provide clear, concise verbal instructions when switched on and it is just a matter of following the instructions provided by the unit. However, AED training is also recommended to give the user greater confidence.

Q: Do I have to be a health care worker to use an AED?
A: NO. An AED guides the user step-by-step through the defibrillation process with visual and voice prompts. The AED will not deliver a shock unless it detects a shockable rhythm e.g. the heart is not beating correctly.

There are more FAQs answered at the St John Ambulance of Australia website.
