Pump 'Em Up

Pump-Em-Up-logo.jpg

Pump ‘Em Up is an initiative that was set up in 2009 after it was recognised that there was a high need for facilities to be established for the pumping of tyres on electric wheelchairs and scooters.

Many electric wheelchair and scooter users have limited mobility needs, and therefore are unable to pump up their wheelchair/scooters and will require assistance from others.

Pump ‘Em Up is about encouraging local businesses to allow wheelchair and scooter users access to their local businesses in order to have their tyres pumped by staff at no cost.

To become a Pump ‘Em Up partner, local businesses will need to be physically accessible and staff will need to be willing to assist in the pumping of tyres so that people in an electric scooter or wheelchair can safely drive in the community.

For more information about the Pump ‘Em Up project in the City of Kingston, please contact Kingston Council’s Social Development team at community@kingston.vic.gov.au or 1300 653 356.

The Pump 'Em Up project is a partnership project between the City of Kingston and local businesses and organisations.

Kingston City Council welcomes this kind and generous contribution by all businesses and organisations involved in Pump ‘Em Up.
