The orange package that could save a life
THIS orange package could help save a life – and people are being invited to learn how to use it.
The defibrillator helps to revive a person suffering a cardiac arrest by delivering an electric shock to their heart.
It has been mounted on the wall of Winterbourne Community Centre in Watleys End Road for use in an emergency.
WADCA has organised a community basic life saving and defibrillator awareness session on Saturday, May 11 from 10am-11.30am so that people can learn more about the defib unit and basic life-saving skills with the South Western Ambulance Service.
Mandy Nicholls from WADCA said: “Training is provided for anyone in the community free of charge. so we would encourage anyone to come along.”
