    Safty and First aid kits on boats

    I must agree with @dirvin21 outside the hospital setting it is about the quality chest compressions. I can tell you as a clinician and a cardiac arrest survivor it is the chest compressions that do the trick. Just yesterday it was 9 years since I had a cardiac arrest. Stewy saved my life as I stopped breathing and had no heart beat. He had the NSW Ambulance on the phone and they told him to commence 400 compressions and no breaths. Paramedics arrived and defibrillated me. Here is my trophy - one that no one wants to win really. Stewy saved my life - he is my hero.

    Check your trip on the M5 cashback

    I will investigate yes and come back to you Dave They did check the photos and an investigation is underway. He has to take his boat to the gantry at the toll station to get it's height measured. They will then put an alert on it to ignore any vehicle Class change that appears in their system. It is all about the height of the boat

    Check your trip on the M5 cashback

    A friend noted that they had been charged as a class B vehicle on some trips to go fishing. This was on the M5 and with a small boat in tow. There were some instances where the outgoing trip was charged as a Class B vehicle and the return as a Class A. The boat is well under the 2 metre height limit for Class A Just FYI to check your cash back statements.

    Check your trip on the M5 cashback

    Means you pay $14.23 each way instead of $4.74. It will also start taking a lot of bucks from your bank acct to auto top up the amt in credit!

    11 March 2019 BOATERS ADVISED MACQUARIE RIVER CLOSED AT LH FORD BRIDGE FOR UPGRADE WORK Boaters are advised that an exclusion zone will be in place from Wednesday 13 March on either side of the river under LH Ford Bridge for the safe construction of two new concrete piers in the Macquarie River. Roads and Maritime Services is upgrading the LH Ford Bridge and the closure is necessary to manage the safety of the community and workers during work which is expected to take up to eight months. Waterway users will not be able to use the area directly under the bridge during work and will not have access through the area. An exclusion zone either side of the bridge will be clearly marked and will include buoys, flashing lights and signage. The bridge work will also involve upgrading the deck of the bridge. The work to build two new piers will provide better support to the bridge to accommodate additional heavy vehicle loads. Connecting the new piers to the bridge deck and adjusting the bridge barriers will require some changed traffic conditions. The community will be notified of any impacts to traffic in advance as work progresses. Work is expected to be completed by early 2020.
