Whilst we hope that the Defibrillator is never used, it is now available when our first responders, the Police may need it.”

“The Narembeen Police are delighted to have accepted the generous donation by the community of the Defibrillator and it was pleasing to have had our Eastern Wheatbelt District Inspector Gordon Fairman  and other district Police representatives here for the handover.” said Sergeant Richie Conkling of the Narembeen Police.
