AED donated to Pokeno Community

A potential lifesaving donation has been made to the Pokeno community by a local gas station.

The Pokeno community now has access to an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) thanks to the generosity of Ravi from Pokeno GAS. On 10 May the new community AED was handed over to Community Committee representative, Todd Miller by Ravi. The AED has been installed into the Community Hall and can be accessed in an emergency by ringing 111 and asking for an ambulance. They will dispatch the closest ambulance, or a fire crew as first responders and give the caller the pin code to access the AED.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
