Did you know 270 children die through Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) every year?
No? You can help cut that death toll today…
Local Councillors start a drive to increase the availability of defibrillators in and around Baddeley, Milton and Norton areas. Councillors Jack Brereton, David Evans and Anthony Munday are pushing to increase the number of defibrillators around Baddeley, Milton and Norton areas. Each defibrillator needs to be placed in a secure box which can be accessed via the emergency services in the case of a suspected sudden cardiac arrest. Currently we have identified 15 sites that we consider as a minimum need to the area.
Although there is always the hope that a defibrillator would be unused, it’s a machine that automatically diagnoses the life threatening possibility of a cardiac arrest, and talks someone through using the machine on a person where minutes matter.
Each AED (Automated External Defibrillator) will cost just under £2,000, and will include a security-coded, vandal proof and heat-regulating external storage cabinet, as well as a Heart Start training course.
AEDdonate is thrilled to be working alongside Councillors, Jack Brereton, David Evens and Anthony Munday. We are hoping that together we will be able to successfully fundraise for 15 AEDs in Baddeley, Milton and Norton areas, and urge everyone in the area to get behind the project to help Baddeley, Milton and Norton areas become heart safe.
Please help to make Baddeley, Milton and Norton areas become Heart safe. Because what if tomorrow is TOO LATE?
