Oceans of Tamworth ‘Plaice’ latest AED!

Today, sees our latest AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) installation at Oceans of Tamworth. A traditional Fish & Chip shop, in the heart of the Exley Centre, Belgrave.

The unit has been installed, commissioned and ready to save lives, in our community. The defibrillator and cabinet were kindly sponsored by Councillor Tina Clements from the SCC Community Fund. Oceans of Tamworth, Kindly agreed to site the defibrillator and pay for the electrical supply to the cabinet.

Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in the UK. It is a sudden severe disturbance of the heart’s normal rhythm that results in the heart ceasing to pump blood around the body sufficiently to sustain life. Yet this can be reversible in approximately 75% of cases, if prompt treatment is available i.e CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) and Defibrillation. This is why we are so passionate about what we do!
