Schools, sports clubs and com­mu­nity groups around Mt Welling­ton and Pan­mure are now safer places, af­ter the do­na­tion of 15 defibrillators (AEDs). The AEDs were do­nated by the Mt Welling­ton Char­i­ta­ble Trust and supplied by St John. One AED re­cip­i­ent was the Auck­land So­ci­ety of Model En­gi­neers (ASME), which runs minia­ture train rides at Peter­son Re­serve, next to the Pan­mure Basin. ASME vice pres­i­dent Gre­ville Wills said it was re­as­sur­ing to have an AED on-site. ’’You never know what might hap­pen, we have many mem­bers and cus­tomers, so it’s good to know we can re­spond quickly in the event of a car­diac ar­rest,’’ Wills said.
