Bourke Shire Council has taken delivery of eight Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to be placed throughout the Shire.

An AED is a small portable device designed to deliver a controlled electric shock to a person experiencing cardiac arrest.

Defibrillators will be located at Byrock, Enngonia, Fords Bridge, Louth, Wanaaring, Bourke Swimming Pool, Bourke PCYC/Davidson Oval, and one will be available for events from Council offices.

Council received funding of $14,850 from the NSW Office of Sport Local Defibrillator program, which was supplemented by Council. Read more in the printed edition of the Western Herald.
