You may have noticed that the Community Centre now has a public defibrillator on the outside wall. These devices are becoming a familiar sight in our towns and villages and can be life-savers when dealing with a cardiac arrest.
We will be running a training and awareness session at the Community Centre on Wednesday, 21st March at 6pm which is free of charge and open to everyone. You will learn basic cardiac arrest first aid (CPR) and how to use the defibrillator (AED).
The session will be presented by local campaigner, Steve Morris. Three years ago, Steve was in the gym at Kings Centre in East Grinstead and had a massive cardiac arrest. His life was saved by the swift action of the trained personnel and the on-site defibrillator. He has been campaigning ever since to raise awareness and provide more public AEDs in the area.
So why not come along – you never know when you may need these potentially life-saving skills. To book your place, call the centre office on 01342 833893 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
