A defibrillator has been bought for the clubhouse, to be positioned adjacent to the bar. It is a model which theoretically requires no training, since it automatically guides the user through the use process.
However, knowing that most people would generally feel more comfortable with if they were familiar with the equipment, the club would like to organise a training session by a certified training provider in the clubhouse.
Club members and their parents are invited to register interest for such a session. Ideally we would like to hold it on a Tuesday evening after training. Once we know what interest there is we will firm up a date and time. The club intend to pay for the training.
Defibrillators have been in the news recently, as ex-England footballer Glenn Hoddle's life was saved by a TV studio technician who used a defibrillator on him. One of our past club presidents who collapsed in the street was also saved by a defibrillator, used by a passing taxi driver.
