New public-access defibrillator installed at a Day Care Centre in Broxburn, Scotland!
19 August 2022
At Wee Gems Armadale, a parent attended a first aid talk at a local baby group and learned the importance of an AED/Defibrillator when someone is unresponsive and CPR is required. Access to this equipment can greatly improve the chances if survival from any out of hospital cardiac arrest.
In Armadale, Arnold Clark and Asda both have an AED but these are only available during office hours. With ambulance times being longer due (in part) to the pandemic, our parent reach out to us and expressed the importance for everyone that we have a public access AED closer than we have at the moment. This is a vital resource for the local community.
Wee Gems Armadale were more than happy to host the device and supported the parent as she fundraised for this!
With the help and support of all Wee Gems families and other companies they were able to raise the £1500 target and more which went towards the device, fitting, testing and maintenance.
Thank you to our parent for leading the way and to everyone who helped make it happen.
