Lions saving lives with training
YEPPOON Lions Club has entered its 48th year in conducting annual lifesaving courses as a club project, to train swimmers in all lifesaving levels from elementary to Bronze Medallion, Bronze Cross and CPR.
Spokesman Brian Dorey said the Royal Life Saving Queensland training sessions have been held at Yeppoon Aquatic and Fitness Centre on Matthew Flinders Dr under qualified instructor and examiner Sharyn Black.
"A squad of five members of Keppel Coast Guides recently successfully passed their examinations and their awards were presented at a recent meeting of the Yeppoon Lions Club,” Mr Dorey said.
"The successful candidates were Amanda Farrell, who achieved CPR, Senior Swim and Survive, Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross; Jeanna Imhoff did her CPR, Senior Swim and Survive, Bronze Star and Bronze Medallion; Annie Emery did CPR Awareness, Senior Swim and Survive, Wade Rescue; Jorja Downey studied for her CPR Awareness, Senior Swim and Survive, Wade Rescue; and Lily Emery achieved the CPR Awareness, Senior Swim and Survive and Dry Rescue.
"Yeppoon Lions are thrilled to be involved in such a worthwhile endeavour that provides people in our community with the skills to potentially save someone's life.”
