The Whistling Frog Café is the latest Southern organisation to benefit from a life-saving donation from PowerNet and St John.

An automated defibrillator (AED) was donated to the café in July, one of four donated to
Southern communities this year.
The donation is part of PowerNet and St John’s sponsorship to improve public safety and
education in the south.

The sponsorship includes the donation of four AED devices annually to the network
communities, which PowerNet manages.
When available within minutes of a cardiac arrest occurring, an AED can vastly improve a
person’s chance of survival.

PowerNet GM People, Culture and Communication, Marcus Waters, said the AED donation was another way the company could support the Southern community to stay safe and healthy. Along with the AED donation two Level 1 First Aid training sessions for The Whistling Frog Café staff would also be provided by the PowerNet funded programme.

“Our partnership with St John is about using our joint resources to promote safety in our
communities, mostly through education. It’s great that PowerNet is able to back this up with the donation of life-saving equipment such as AEDs,” he said.
