Defibrillator provided by Walk Wellington for public use

posted 11 Feb 2017, 19:01 by Web Master

Walk Wellington has continued its policy of returning surplus funds to support the local tourism industry by funding a public defibrillator (AED).  The AED has been installed by Wellington Free Ambulance in the foyer of the Westpac Bank, 318 Lambton Quay, which is opposite the south end of Featherston St. 

Although we sincerely hope that it will not be required, it is available for both visitors and residents.

Walk Wellington is proud of its ability to be able to support the tourism facilities of Wellington.
