Keep an eye out for Berwick CFA members rattling donation tins on Berwick’s main street this weekend – you could be helping save a life.
The brigade is raising funds for life-saving equipment such as a defibrillator and an oxygen resuscitation kit on a second vehicle.
It will assist the brigade attend multiple patients and other emergencies that happen at the same time, the station’s fund-raising co-ordinator Meg Le Miere said.
It will also help it cover its expanded response boundaries out to Beaconsfield and Narre Warren South.
“Because of the increase in events and expanding boundaries, the Berwick CFA is now calling for the support of the community in helping to fund an expansion of potentially lifesaving equipment,” Ms Le Miere said.
Berwick CFA is one of three fully-volunteer brigades in the state that respond to Priority Zero medical emergencies.
It responds to about 70 incidents in which it treats an unconscious patient in medical crisis.
The station is hoping to raise about $6000 for the equipment.
Its members will be collecting donations at the corner of High Street and Clyde Road on 18 and 19 November.
