2107 Charity Partner – Response for Life
In 2017 Response for Life was selected as the charity partner for AUSFEST. Response For Life aims to raise awareness of prompt CPR and DEFIBRILLATION as the best treatment of Sudden Cardiac Arrest until emergency help arrives.
With funds raised at AUSFEST 2017 Response For Life, officially donated six lifesaving portable defibrillation machines to the Miranda and Sutherland Police Local Area Commands and the St George & Sutherland Community College.
“Five of the defibrillators will be assigned to local police vehicles and one unit will be given to the Community College for use in emergency situations on campus,” said Sutherland Shire Mayor Carmelo Pesce.
“I’m incredibly proud of our community’s generosity during Council’s AUSFEST celebrations, which enabled Response For Life to purchase these devices, giving them to areas they are needed most.
These portable defibrillators will save lives in our community,” said the Mayor.
