Emergency Response Bolstered In Moore Park

Moore Park Beach residents experiencing an emergency are set to receive pre-hospital care even quicker with the formation of the Moore Park Beach First Responder Group.

Comprising of volunteers from within the community, the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) utilises first responder groups across the state in rural and sometimes isolated communities to attend local incidents and medical emergencies until advanced medical care arrives.

Although critical emergencies don’t occur every day in small communities, when they do, the role of first responders can mean the difference between life and death.

“With the first on-call shift scheduled for Friday, we currently have eight members with completed training and their uniform ready to pull on,” Mr Cooke said.
