Brislington & St Anne’s Conservative Club now have life saving equipment installed at the site located in Brislington, Bristol. Thanks go to support from the Tesco Bags of Help scheme and customers in the area that voted for the campaign.

 

This site comes as a second site for community champion Dan O'Shea who helped to source a location for this device. 

 

The defibrillator is registered with the local ambulance service and can be activated to anyone needing it in the nearby vicinity. This means that users of the club and residents in the nearby area are now protected in the event of a cardiac arrest. The defibrillator is available 24/7. 

 

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 community to use in an emergency.

 

Responsible for around 30,000 out of hospital deaths in the UK every year, sudden cardiac arrest is one of the country’s biggest killers but quick and easy access to a defibrillator can significantly increase the chances of survival.
