Defibrillators

Recommended Posts

I hope many people have seen a defibrillator on the side of the Masonic Hall. There are others going into the Front Street and we hope people will want to come along and see how they work.

Everybody, get along to this! It take's only minutes to learn, it's easy. Nothing to be afraid of. The defibrillator talks to you and gives you instructions all the time.

And when you've been there please keep up to date on where to find the nearest defibrillator. It's very important that someone knows where it is, and goes to collect it  while someone else is giving CPR.

Excellent use of resources. They are one of those things you hope you'll never need but are nevertheless pleased to know they are always available.

About four years ago my then 45 year old son who is very healthy and fit, walks,climbs, hikes,mountain bikes, ice hockey, baseball etc,stepped onto the ice with his son to play a game of shinny hockey, he made one lap of the rink and his heart stopped! quick response by the arena staff located the AED defibrillator and they got his heart going again, after operations and recuperation he has recovered and living a normal life.

Last year he walked the way of St James, Camino de Santiago, 800 km, he has worn out one bike and working on the next one! we are so grateful that the arena staff were trained in CPR and the use of AED's 

His heart condition is a hereditary condition, we are all taking our turn! 

For your friends and family's sake please learn how to use these AED's understand CPR you never know!

Nice to hear a success story, Vic! It's not unusual here, in outlying places, that 3 or 4 houses club together to buy one. Apparently, they're not too expensive. I know that the defib in the nearest village has twice been put to good use in the last 18 months.
