Community AED Defibrillator Fundraiser
As part of our ongoing commitment to our local community we are looking to install an AED Machine (Defibrillator) on our
car park premises for emergency use by the general public
30,000 people die each year from out of hospital Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), 620 of these are people under the age of 35 and 270 of these deaths happen to children within schools. If defibrillation takes place within the first three minutes of a SCA, the patient’s chances of survival increase by upwards of 80%.
Having the defibrillator installed means that it can be deployed by the local ambulance trust in a bid to give the patient the all-important shock to the heart prior to the ambulance arrival. The defibrillator is by no means a replacement to the ambulance service, its just allows patient treatment to commence immediately.
If you would like to support us by helping to raise £2000 for the purchase and installation,
