Bramshall Villagers came out in force last week and were trained to use the new Defibrillator by Jamie Richards from AEDdonate.

Everyone was really impressed with the equipment and now feel confident to deal with an emergency, if it should happen.

The Chair of the Parish Council, Mrs Jean Pattinson-Evans, said a few words before the training took place to Thank everyone who had donated to the cost of the machine.

Two of the donors, Matt Slater from John German and Rupert Hill from Knights4Uttoxeter were both at the training session and both enjoyed the training and were happy to be able to help the Parish to install this vital life saving equipment.

Jamie Richards, Chief Executive of AEDdonate; who supplied the AED said “The chance of survival after Sudden Cardiac Arrest decreases minute by minute, but if someone is shocked with a Defibrillator within 3 minutes their chance of survival increases by 70 {d30390558f9e4508be1047a3a1acb6b4e0b00fabde10b462fce3f3fe1e727ecc} ”

“Having an AED within a 1/2-mile radius from wherever you are I believe is a must.” “we would welcome further communities to get in touch to see if we can help”.
