Surf Life Saving NSW partners with Madimack to run CPR course
Surf Life Saving NSW has partnered with Madimack - one of Australia's leading providers of sustainable and efficient energy solutions for residential and commercial facilities - in the fight to prevent drownings by running the successful CPR course, ‘Living Room Lifesaver’ with NRL team, Cronulla Sharks.
Tragically 248 people drowned in Australia in 2019/20. With many of those deaths being potentially preventable through bystander CPR.
Sharks captain Wade Graham and his squad were among the first to benefit after club sponsor Madimack (became the back of shorts partner for the 2020-21 seasons) partnered with Surf Life Saving NSW to provide CPR training and compliant CPR Pool Charts to Madimack pool heating customers.
"Every Australian should learn CPR and this is a great initiative from Madimack," said Sharks’ prop Aaron Woods who along with wife Sarah witnessed a drowning.
"We all love our backyard pools and whether we are swimming at home or down the beach we owe it to our friends and families to be prepared to help when someone needs CPR."
Surf Life Saving NSW’s Dan Gaffney said getting people trained in CPR should be a priority for families and businesses.
Gaffney advised “Knowing what to do in the vital first few minutes of an emergency can buy critical time and save a life. The Living Room Lifesaver is an online CPR program and training resources we developed in 2020 to give anyone access to quality CPR training in their homes.
“If a family member or friend was unconscious in the pool or collapsed at home would you know what to do?” trainer Dan Gay asked the Sharks.
“Those first minutes really play a big role for people that have a cardiac issue or a drowning in a pool. Through our Living Room Lifesaver courses people have told us that they’re performing CPR on their loved ones – partners, parents and family members. It’s so important to know how to get started because doing something is always better than doing nothing.”
The roll-out of Madimack's pool safety initiative means customers will be provided with compliant CPR pool charts and Surf Life Saving NSW's Living Room Lifesaver course. It's a family-focussed, COVIDSafe, online CPR and emergency response course delivered directly into the comfort of your home.
Madimack Chief Executive Alex Welsh is determined to use the company's national distribution channels of Reece Group and Pool Systems along with their thousands of trade customers to deliver the safety program to Australian families.
Welsh added "If this safety and education program helps to save just one life it will have served its purpose.
"Madimack and our trade partners are determined to help Australians get the training they need to be prepared for emergency situations."
