Beacon Sports fitness have taken part in a training session after recently installing a defibrillator at the front of their facility. The session covered the basics of dealing with a cardiac arrest, demonstrations and the chance to get hands-on with a training AED simulator.

Generous donations from members, guests, staff and friends of the facility mean that potentially life-saving equipment is available 24/7 for anyone who may need it. Thanks also go to the support from the Tesco bags of Help scheme.

The defibrillator is registered with the ambulance service and will be monitored by the site to ensure it remains available.
