St Clears

Carmarthen Journal - - Living In: Community News -

ST Clears is the lat­est com­mu­nity to re­ceive life­sav­ing de­fib­ril­la­tors with thanks to match­fund­ing raised by St Clears Town Coun­cil and the British Heart Foun­da­tion (BHF)’s Na­tion of Life­saver pack­age.

Dr Ed­mund Davies, mayor of St Clears said: “We are de­lighted that a de­fib­ril­la­tor will be lo­cated out­side the leisure cen­tre so that it is ac­ces­si­ble at all times in the event of an emer­gency.

“I would like to thank the pre­vi­ous mayor of St Clears, Coun­cil­lor Lyn Davies, for pro­vid­ing the vi­tal funds for these pieces of life-sav­ing equip­ment.

“The lo­cal com­mu­nity were trained on emer­gency life skills, which in­volves CPR and de­fib­ril­la­tor train­ing kindly pro­vided by Car­marthen­shire Coun­cil.”

Jayne Lewis, BHF Cymru’s lo­cal fundrais­ing man­ager, added: “I would like to thank St Clears Town Coun­cil for all their help and sup­port in rais­ing the match fund­ing for the de­fib­ril­la­tor.

“With more peo­ple in Wales trained in emer­gency life-sup­port skills and more de­fib­ril­la­tors avail­able lo­cally, the chances of re­sus­ci­tat­ing some­one from a car­diac ar­rest should be greatly im­proved.”
