Rathmines Catalina: 'Our Girl' restoration updates
September 2019 report
2019 seems to be a pivotal year for the restoration of ‘Our Girl’
Progress update summary
As an association, our immediate concentration is to be as organised and advanced with the restoration as possible, to allow us to participate as best we can in the RAAF’s Centenary celebrations in 2021.
With the growing number of volunteers attending each workday we have identified for some time a requirement for a defibrillator (AED) to be kept on site. With the assistance of a NSW Government Grant, the RCA recently purchased an AED which complements our trained First Aid representatives and gives us the confidence and an assurance that we are as well prepared as we can be, for most medical conditions on site.
In the same vein, we have commenced an automatic re-ordering system for our volunteer Personal Protective Equipment, with a standard max/min order replenishment each month, ensuring a regular supply of safety equipment at all times.
We are constantly looking for volunteers to help with the Catalina restoration and effective running of the Rathmines Catalina Association.
Whether ‘hands-on’ working on the Catalina or assisting with the Association’s many other tasks, whatever your skillset we have a role for you!
