A member of the community contacted us after their defibrillator was stolen and the cabinet was damaged to such a degree that it can no longer be used. The lifesaving equipment was funded and installed by the local community and will only work in the event of a cardiac arrest. To take a machine like this will serve no benefit unless someone happens to be in that life or death situation. As a charity we can’t stand the thought of a community without a defibrillator, so we stepped in to provide a loan unit. This site is not an AEDdonate site but we will offer our full support to ensure this community is back up and running as soon as possible.
The loan defibrillator is now available at Red House Pub during opening hours.
If you know who did this damage or know where this defibrillator is then please get in touch as a matter of urgency.
The life-saving device was stolen in Caverswall in the early hours of Wednesday June 26.
Staffordshire Police say work is ongoing to identify those responsible
