Club receives life-saving defibrillator

Friday, January 4, 2019

The Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing Club will be better prepared to manage a medical emergency after recently receiving a defibrillator from the sport’s controlling body, Greyhound Racing SA.

MGGRC president John Woodland said this week that the club considered the defibrillator a wonderful asset and the equivalent of extra insurance at the Tara Raceway complex on Lake Terrace East.

“Although many of our participants and patrons would be considered relatively fit and healthy, many do fit into the higher risk age groups,” he said.

“While exercising regularly is a positive step in maintaining good health there are still no guarantees.”

He said a defibrillator represented peace of mind, knowing that if required there was a unit close by for use in an emergency response.

“We hope we do not have to use it, but it is reassuring to know that there is a defibrillator at the track should the need arise.”
