Golf club’s life-saving defibrillator

A PIECE of life-saving equipment has been installed at Clevedon Golf Club.
The defibrillator has been donated by Great Western Ambulance Service after a request from The Rotary Club of Clevedon.
It can be used on a patient when suffering a cardiac arrest and gives the heart an electric shock.
Staff at the Castle Road club have been trained how to use it by Chris Parsons of Nailsea-based South West Medical Services.
Now, the rotary club plans to fund more defibrillators to be installed in other areas of Clevedon.

“It will be available to all members of the public in the event of an emergency during the day.”
