It was a pleasure to deliver a community defibrillator awareness session at the Wall Heath Tavern in Kingswinford, it was fantastic to see so many people joining in.

Whilst defibrillators are easy to use it is great that members of this community are better prepared in the event of an emergency. A defibrillator is a device that gives a high-energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest. Providing an essential and potentially life-saving, stage in the treatment of anyone suffering a cardiac arrest, defibrillators are easy to operate with step-by-step instructions for members of the public to use in an emergency.

Our awareness courses are designed to demonstrate just how easy it is to use a defibrillator but also show how to access one in an emergency. The session allows for questions and aims to offer reassurance and structure in what can be an extremely stressful time. Anyone wishing to book on a course should check out our events page on facebook or contact us on 01785 472224 to arrange one of your own.

There is a defibrillator installed on an exterior wall at the pub, the machine is available 24/7 and can be accessed by calling 999.
