A POTENTIALLY life saving piece of equipment has been donated to two Roleystone groups.

The Roleystone-Karragullen Bendigo Bank branch donated a defibrillator each to the Roleystone Country Club and the Roleystone Community College, providing them with the vital piece of equipment for serious first aid emergencies.

Both the school and the country club have recently achieved St John Safe accreditation, a program which helps ready staff for any first aid situation that might arise.

A St John spokesperson said they had shown dedication to safety through completion of the St John Safe program.

“The St John Safe program is a way of communicating to workers and the wider community that an organisation has first aid training, equipment and systems in place to deal with an emergency situation,” she said.
