The Stoke Gifford Scouts have successfully fundraised to provide the community of Stoke Gifford with a 24 hour defibrillator.
The idea came after a first aid session back in June 2016 where the scouts learnt how to use a fully automatic defibrillator unit.
The defibrillator has been provided by The Community Heartbeat Trust Charity who will provide maintenance for the unit ongoing This bright yellow circular box has been fixed to the outside wall of the Old School Rooms. The code to the locked box is available from South West Ambulance Service by ringing 999 or 112 when a resident is suffering from a suspected cardiac arrest.
The Community Heartbeat Trust are providing a seminar for the community on Thursday 20th April 2017 at 1pm.
Spaces are limited, so booking is essential. Please sign up here.
