Bears players unveil Community Public Access Defibrillator

Bears players helped to unveil a Community Public Access Defibrillator (CPAD) the Victoria public house in Westbury-on-Trym on Thursday.

Aly Muldowney, Joe Latta, Charles Piutau and Sam Jeffries) supported the unveiling of the defibrillators.  As part of the drive to promote community led CPR, Pat Lam was supported by Great Western Air Ambulance to train all of his players in CPR.

The money for the defibrillator was raised from donations, led by a local lady, Elspeth Benden, whose son Andrew died unexpectedly, this is the second CPAD she has raised funds for. 

Councillor Mark Weston, Leader of the Conservative Group, attended to show his and his colleagues desire to support such schemes. The council have already undertaken steps to assess how they can support community learning CPR. “The simple fact is that CPR saves lives," he said.

"All too often members of the community die in Bristol and could have survived if only more people knew, and were confident in CPR and using a defibrillator. Every minute counts when a patient is in cardiac arrest - the more people that are trained the higher the likelihood that someone nearby can help.”
