Clive Eckersall with the new defibrillator

First published in News by

A LIFE-SAVING defibrillator has been installed at the Brimscombe-based Inside Football facility.

The machine was donated by the South West Ambulance Service.

Staff were given on-site training from community response officer Kevin Dickens and his assistant Tom Hart.

Inside Football director Clive Eckersall said: “There are around 60,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the UK every year and every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces the persons chances of survival by 10 per cent.

“We are all delighted to have a defibrillator on-site at our facility and for the local community.”
