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.
