COMMUNITY Based Support (CBS) has received three defibrillator machines for use in its social hubs state-wide.

CBS chief executive officer Allyson Warrington said the defibrillator machines were funded by a major donation from Hobart Friendly Care Pharmacies.

“These first three defibrillator machines will enable us to respond to any emergency situation as they arise in the three locations,” she said.

“We are placing one machine in our main office in Moonah, the New Town hub and the third in our new hub in Riverside.

“We will also be buying more defibrillator machines to be placed in our Launceston office and Kingston hub.”

Group Pharmacy manager of the Hobart Friendly Care Pharmacies Matt Luciani said the organisation would look to continue to support Community Based Support.

“We identified Community Based Support as an organisation operating in a sector we support – the more vulnerable in our community, being the aged care and people living with disability,” he said.

“We want to develop a long-term partnership with Community Based Support and our donation was able to provide them with something they needed for their social hubs and office.”

Community Based Support, based in Moonah, cares for 3,500 aged care and disability clients state-wide.
