UAP Invests in Life Saving Defibrillators
Published on 10 February, 2021Latest News
UAP have chosen to invest in a set of defibrillators at our work premises at Whitefield and Radcliffe. Defibrillators help to protect against Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), which is a leading cause of death in the UK, affecting around 700,000 individuals each year, according to the Resuscitation Council.
Both machines are registered on the heartsafe.org.uk website. By adding our AED we are making all Public Access Defibrillators (PADs) easy to locate throughout the UK.
These devices can save lives in an emergency, so it’s very important that they’re available and in working order across the country.
We also would like to share a free training resource with an interactive movies where you can learn the essential skills needed to save a life – visit https://life-saver.org.uk to learn what to do in an emergency.
This follows other work we have done with public health and charity, including the Encephalitis Society.
