Slaley’s defibrillator was commissioned yesterday (Friday) by Adele Young of the Ambulance Service. You will find the cabinet on the East wall of the Rose & Crown pub (as shown).
There will also be a Life Support Training session on Monday July 27th at 7.30 pm in Slaley Commemoration Hall. This will cover the use of our defibrillator machine, and basic life saving skills. Everyone welcome – no age limits!
You do not need take part in the CPR training, but we should all be aware of Slaley’s own Defibrillator where it is and how it works before we are in a situation of needing to help someone.
This is FREE, there are DVDs to take home and there will be a short film on our film club screen. We look forward to seeing you on Monday 27th, and do encourage your neighbours to come.
If the heart of someone you love stopped beating, would you know what to do? Three simple steps (CALL, PUSH, RESCUE) that could mean the difference between life and death:
- CALL 999 immediately.
- PUSH hard and fast on the centre of the chest 30 times.
- Give two RESCUE breaths.
