Defibrillators for visitor centre and church site
TWO life-saving defibrillators has been installed in key locations across the town.
Macclesfield Council was able to put a device and cabinet by the Visitor Information Centre thanks to a grant from the British Heart Foundation.
The second device has been installed outside Tytherington Family Worship Church.
The equipment can only be used on someone in cardiac arrest giving people the chance to provide what could well be life-saving treatment.
Pete Turner, clerk of Macclesfield Council, said: “This new addition to the available equipment in the town centre is accessible 24 hours a day and every day being located in a public and visible place in the town centre.
“We applied for the grant from British Heart Foundation with the support of the North West Ambulance Service and are very grateful for their work and provision of the fully accessible Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) and the external cabinet.”
Coun Beverley Dooley, who represents the town centre ward for Macclesfield Council, said: “This is an excellent initiative brought forward for the benefit of the town.”
