Angarrack Defibrillator meeting 2019

Mar 8 , 2019 - Fri - 7:30 pm
Come to a meeting at 7:30pm on Friday 8th March 2019 at the community centre where we can work together to benefit the village even more.

Defibrillators are most effective when placed so they can be accessed as quickly as possible, and ideally within 3 minutes.

With the village having two hills and a long road along the river, that's a challenge with a single defibrillator. So the defibrillator team has been working on getting more defibrillators to cover the village.

They've managed to access enough funding to get three more defibrillators for the village.

At last year's meeting, it was thought funding for two might be possible and the suggested locations were at the Community Centre, and if another was possible then one near the viaduct on Riverside. But we're in the fortunate position of haveing a fourth one which can be allocated somewhere else in order to maximise coverage. They all need an electrical connection to keep them charged.

There's also an opportunity for some more training - either beginners, or if you would like a refresher course.
