Yamba Rotary recently conducted a survey of defibrillators in Yamba and discovered that there where 4 in the CBD, 2 in Doctors surgeries and one each in the Golf & Bowls clubs but none available after hours.
There was also one inside Priceline Pharmacy at Yamba Fair. This one has since been moved into the public space near Coles making it available for the longer trading hours of Coles.
The Rotary club then set themselves a target of getting at least five(5) publicly available 24/7. To date four(4) have been funded, two(2) by individual businesses and two(2) in partnership with Rotary, with two more in the process of being organised. Clarence Valley Council (CVC) have agreed to install street signage to indicate where all defibrillators are located, existing as well as new installations.
