Defibrillator installed at Stakehill Industrial Estate
Date published: 15 September 2023
The new defibrillator in place
Stakehill Industrial Estate has recently had a state-of-the-art defibrillator installed and the life-saving device will be accessible 24 hours a day, providing crucial support in emergency situations.
Stakehill BID covers the Stakehill Industrial Estate and has funded the installation of the device, which is located next to Rafters Café in the centre of the estate. The device has a user-friendly interface and clear instructions, so it can be easily operated by both trained professionals and individuals with minimal medical knowledge.
In the event of a sudden cardiac arrest, time is of the essence. The defibrillator’s rapid response capabilities can significantly increase the chances of survival by delivering a controlled electric shock to restore the heart’s normal rhythm. This crucial intervention, when administered promptly, can be the difference between life and death.
Local businesses and employees have been encouraged to familiarise themselves with the defibrillator’s location and operation. Training sessions will be organised periodically to ensure that individuals are able to use the device effectively during emergencies.
Alan Johnson, Stakehill BID manager, said: “The installation marks a significant milestone in the ongoing efforts to create a safer and more secure environment for all. As a BID, we’re committed to creating a healthy and supportive environment within the industrial estate.”
