Health and Safety

Defibrillator Installed

The Violet Town Shooting complex is a safer place thanks to the installation, on Saturday, of a defibrillator provided by the State Government.  St John’s Ambulance members delivered the unit to the complex and then instructed the members of the East Central District Rifle Association and the Euroa Clay Target Club in the correct use of a defibrillator. The two clubs take the health and safety of their members and visitors very seriously and this is just one more step towards that goal. Surprisingly the current demographic of Target Shooters is in the older bracket.  The instructor said that since the program commenced many lives have been saved through prompt use of a defibrillator by the general public. Marty Kelly, Captain of the ECDRA, thanked the instructor for the unit and training and said it was good to know that all authorized users of the Violet Town Shooting Complex have access to this great life saving equipment.   The training concluded with lunch and then it was down to business with the classic 303 match.
