Coffs Coast sports organisations have been awarded funds to put towards life-saving defibrillators, said Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser said it was great to see local clubs had applied for the first round of funding.
"So far more than 430 defibrillators have been allocated across the state and I am confident the addition of defibrillators in our region will benefit local players and spectators," Mr Fraser said.
"The Coffs Coast has a rich history of enjoying community sport and we look forward to the installation of more of these portable life-saving devices here."
