AMBULANCES in Mooroopna and Numurkah are set to have Navmans fitted, after a second fundraising effort by local businesses, driven by Shepparton Taxis, saw the purchase of the 4 navigation devices.
The donation amount of $1,020 was raised by nine local businesses and the Navmans were purchased at a discounted rate, thanks to the generosity of The Good Guys.
Ambulance Victoria group manager Western Hume, John Morris said, “All of our ambulances are fitted with Navmans in Shepparton thanks to the prior fundraising efforts, so this will allow us to spread the donations around the region.
“It’s good to see the community and ambulance working together to raise these funds to allow for the purchase of these devices, which assist in locating cases.
“All of our cars do have emergency services maps in them to ensure drivers take the most direct route, but these Navmans will help to work alongside that.
“We are very appreciative of Shepparton Taxis and their donators.”
