MMG Dugald River has hosted a first aid course for the Cloncurry community, with eleven participants taking up the free opportunity.
The nationally recognised training was facilitated by Dugald River Mine paramedic, Tyson Muir, and provided participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to appropriately respond to emergencies, and administer first aid.
The training covered how to identify and assess the nature of an injury or illness, and a thorough understanding of the first aid action plan, DRSABCD, that should guide all first aid incidents.
Each participant obtained a Certificate of Attainment issued by Host Safety and Training for the units, Provide First Aid (HLTAID003) and, Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (HLTAID001).
"We want to empower the Cloncurry community with the ability to respond quickly, and act in a safe manner when faced with a casualty or first aid situation", said Nick Johnson, Dugald River Mine Coordinator Communities and HSE Support.
"This first aid course is applicable to all people in a range of situations within the community, workplace, school and home, and can be used on adults, children and babies. MMG is proud to partner with the local community to provide training which may save a life" he said.
