Ambos to celebrate big week

WARWICK Local Ambulance Committee (LAC) and members of Warwick Queensland Ambulance Service are organising a display at Rose City Shopping Centre this week as part of Ambulance Week.

Axle, the QAS baby ambulance, will be there and is always a highlight for children who like to sit and play and have their photo taken with him. A television will be raffled and there will be merchandise on sale at the stall, which is open 9am-5pm today and 9am-noon tomorrow.

This is a good opportunity for anyone wanting to know more about Warwick LAC and their role in the community. Warwick paramedics will also drop by during the week and will be on hand to answer questions.

Ambulance Week runs each year near the anniversary of the state's first civil ambulance service and is a perfect opportunity to say thanks to the dedicated ambulance staff and volunteers who work to keep Queenslanders safe all year round.

Paramedics, communications staff, patient transport officers, clinical staff and volunteers provide help and hope for people in their darkest hours, and the community's respect for their work is reflected by the fact that paramedics were recently voted Australia's most trusted profession for the 11th year in a row.
