We have members of staff that have received training in the operation who will be available to assist in a nearby emergency situation.
If anyone has the need for the defibrillator, they can call us and one of our trained staff can bring the device to assist in a cardiac emergency.
Defibrillator For Community Registered on ‘The Circuit’
We have registered our defibrillator on the National Defibrillator Network, The Circuit, and it is also connected to the West Midlands Ambulance Service. This will allow it to be found quickly when medical emergencies arise in the surrounding area and more likely to be used in an emergency.
According to the British Heart Foundation, the high energy shock that is produced by defibrillators can play an essential role in saving the life of someone who is in cardiac arrest.
Their chance of survival reduces by up to 10% for every minute that it takes for the equipment to reach them.
Ridgway MD, Stuart Jones says
“While we really hope we never have reason to use this defibrillator, it’s reassuring to know we have one here just in case and that it could help to save someone’s life.
“There are many local businesses in St Martins and the local area as well as the general public that will now have the benefit of this device so we really want the whole community to know about it and spread the word that it is here and we can assist in the event of an emergency”.
