We care about you.

The Sub-Branch has purchased a defibrillator just in case we have a medical emergency in the club-rooms which requires its use.

No special training is required as the machine talks you through the steps. Demonstration video

As the first 8 minutes are critical in saving the life of a person who has suffered a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) we have taken expect advice that it is essential to have an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) close at hand.

We will have a series of demonstrations showing how it works, so that anyone who is close by when a SCA occurs can use the AED and hopefully save someones life.

Use of AED's is governed by "Good Samaritan" legislation which in essence says that if you are attempting to save a live and things go wrong you cannot be held responsible.

The following link shows more about the AED's operation.

PS and we brought it through a local!
