A real 'life' line

Malvern Editorial 25th Mar, 2015 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016   0

A RED telephone box in Malvern district has been kitted out with lifesaving equipment.

And, following the introduction of the new defibrillator in Mamble, 19 members of the community have been trained by West Midlands Ambulance Service in CPR and were shown how to use the device which is in the phone box next to the village hall.

The equipment is used to restart a person’s heart when they suffer a cardiac arrest.

Dave Rowley, an advanced community paramedic who helped with the training, said: “For every minute someone is in cardiac arrest their chance of survival diminishes by ten per cent.




“The more defibrillators we have in the community, the greater the chance of saving a life.

“I would appeal to all communities, groups and organisations to embrace this opportunity and technology that can really make a difference.”
