Help us get a Defibrillator!

Posted on

100,000 people a year die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), 620 of these are people under the age of 35 and 270 of these deaths happen to children within schools. If defibrillation takes place within the first three minutes of a SCA, the patient’s chances of survival increase by upwards of 80%.

Having an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) available for the public to access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week makes early defibrillation achievable and can help to save lives.

Signposts in Stafford is working alongside AEDdonate to fundraise to have a defibrillator installed on the outside of their building.
