A new medical unit for Triathlon Valleyfield and the Régates de Valleyfield
The acquisition of a new medical unit for Triathlon Valleyfield and the Régates de Valleyfield has become a reality thanks to the Caisse Desjardins de Salaberry-de-Valleyfield. The trailer and a cart will be used by both organizations to provide exceptional medical services.
The medical trailer includes a dozen first aid kits, replacement medical equipment, a specialized cart for first aid and casualty transport as well as a side-by-side recreational vehicle with a box in the back. These amenities will allow local events to be well-equipped to provide safe and exemplary service to participants, athletes and festival-goers, as well as facilitate the safe work of volunteer medical professionals.
This acquisition will allow the organizations to rent the mobile units to other events in Quebec and thus allow for an additional income of over $4,000 per year.
The trailer was used for the first time during the 18th edition of the Valleyfield Triathlon that was held on Sunday, August 15th. The trailer will be very useful for years to come!
