James Engineering are working alongside AEDdonate to have 2 defibrillators installed in their community.
“A team of 11 employees (incl. 2 support staff) from James Engineering, will cycle 140 miles from Whitehaven to Tynemouth over a 3 day period (1st, 2nd & 3rd October 2021) to raises funds for this fantastic cause”
The two defibrillations will be installed locally to their premises in Alfreton Derbyshire (1st on their Industrial Estate, 2nd at Alfreton Train Station).
30,000 people die each year from out of hospital Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), 620 of these are people under the age of 35 and 270 of these deaths happen to children within schools. If defibrillation takes place within the first three minutes of a SCA, the patient’s chances of survival increase by upwards of 80%.
Having the defibrillator installed means that it can be deployed by the local ambulance trust in a bid to give the patient the all-important shock to the heart prior to the ambulance arrival. The defibrillator is by no means a replacement to the ambulance service, it just allows patient treatment to commence immediately.
