DEFIBRILLATOR DONATION

A paramedic from West Midlands Ambulance Service came to school this week to demonstrate how to use a vital piece of medical equipment which has been donated to us as part of the “Big Shock Campaign” organised by the national cardiac charity, SADS UK.

 

The Automated External Defibrillator has been given to the school by Mr and Mrs Spooner in memory of their son Joe who died from a heart condition aged just 15.

 

The couple have worked tirelessly to raise the funds to put lifesaving defibrillators into the local community and we are very grateful to them for providing us with one.

 

Ten members of staff have been trained how to use the lifesaving machine and posters outlining the warning signs of cardiac arrest are being displayed around school.
