FREE first aid training will be offered to Mount Isa residents, as storm and wet seasons approach.
The Mount Isa City Council will utilise services of local training organisations and a grant obtained through the State Government’s RACQ Get Ready Queensland campaign to offer the training.
Mayor Tony McGrady said this would be a fantastic opportunity for residents to obtain or update skills that could literally save lives during possible natural disasters in our outback environment.
“By offering this free training, we hope to have as many people as we can in the city trained in life-saving techniques. This will be such a valuable asset to the city and all residents,” Cr McGrady said.
“This course is something that many people have often wanted to participate in, but have not found the time or the money. We hope that be offering this course at no cost, it will give people the opportunity to get involved.”
A number of courses will be offered, using both weekends and weekday afternoons to suit a range of people.
