Keeping all our guests safe remains our number one priority, so we’re pleased to announce that we’ve installed a new defibrillator at the Caretaker’s office here at Rolls-Royce Leisure.
We now have three defibrillators across the complex with one in the Pavilion and another at our Fitness Centre.
Having three defibrillators gives all our visitors quick access to a defibrillator no matter where they are or what they are doing across our site.
A defibrillator or AED is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart of someone who is in cardiac arrest. This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it’s an essential part in trying to save the life of someone who’s in cardiac arrest.
It is important that if you see someone who is unconscious, unresponsive, not breathing or not breathing normally to call 999 and start CPR to help keep the blood flowing to the brain and around the body.
After a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces someone’s chance of survival by 10 per cent.
If you’re unsure how to use a defibrillator, see the British Heart Foundation’s guide on using one safely here: https://bit.ly/3r729w2.
Please note the defibrillators are not available 24/7, they are available when staff are at the complex.
