People can learn more about Stroud’s new community defibrillators at a seminar on Tuesday January 15.
Organised by Stroud Town Council and the Community Heartbeat charity, the two-hour awareness seminar will help people learn more about CPR techniques.
Five public access defibrillators were installed in town centre locations last year, thanks to an initiative by the Town Council.
This equipment is very easy to use, and when you have called 999, the ambulance service operator will normally stay on the telephone to assist you.
The defibrillator is also designed to talk to you, or show you, and tell you what to do. You cannot make a mistake when using an AED (community defibrillator) – just follow the instructions being given.
The seminar starts at 2.30pm in the George Room, Subscriptions Rooms.
The event is free but people need to register with the Town Council. Contact Sheral Gardner on: [email protected].
