Mount Isa State Emergency Service

Mount Isa’s State Emergency Service received a $5,000 grant to purchase new equipment and provide training from Domino’s Give for Good small grants program with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR).  

Mount Isa SES Volunteer David Muston said the grant has allowed them to purchase Microsoft tablets and a reusable Multiple Casualty Simulation Kit to develop and deliver First Aid simulation training.

“The Multiple Casualty Simulation Kit allows us to provide hands-on, quality training to our volunteer members with equipment that enables us to train for unusual and difficult injuries with realistic simulations,” David said.

“The Surface Pro tablets assist the team by increasing operating efficiency, streamlining communication processes, and improving our ability to assist the community in times of need.”

Domino’s Director of Giving John Harney said the Mount Isa State Emergency Service was the perfect recipient for the Give for Good small grants program.

“At Domino’s, we are keen to support organisations that assist communities impacted by natural disasters and in times of need,” John said.

“We hope that by supporting this organisation we are helping to develop and deliver First Aid simulation training for emergency service volunteers and improve their ability to assist the community in times of need.”

With more than 680 Domino’s stores located across Australia, Domino’s is committed to working with its local communities in the areas of education and youth initiatives; leadership and entrepreneurship; disaster relief and preparedness; and food and sustainability. 

“We work closely with FRRR through the grants initiative to help build resilient and adaptive rural, regional and removed communities. Our Give for Good small grants program is an annual program assisting with community-led projects that respond to these impact areas.”

Domino’s Give for Good small grants program launched in 2016 through the FRRR with 20 not-for-profit organisations and community groups sharing in just under $90,000.
