Learn how to #restartaheart in Ludlow

Friday 16th October 2015 – 4.35pm – Chris Kowalik.

A group in Ludlow that has been behind making a defibrillator accessible within a few minutes from anywhere in the town is about to run more lifesaving training sessions.

Members of the public are invited to Rockspring Community Centre in Sandford Road, Ludlow SY8 1SX to learn how to perform CPR and how to use a defibrillator, a device that could restart the heart of someone who suffers a cardiac arrest.

It’s been organised by the group ‘Ludlow Defib 4 You’ and will involve staff from West Midlands Ambulance Service who are providing the training for free.

The sessions are as follows:

Friday 30th October:

10am-1pm Automated External Defibrillator Training

1.30pm-3pm Refresher training

 

Saturday 31st October:

Midday-3pm Automated External Defibrillator Training

Refresher training is also available by arrangement.

 

Anyone is welcome, but please book in advance. Application forms and further information is available from Penelope Bridstrup on 01584 876992 or 07747 025798 or email pabridstrup@btinternet.com

‘Ludlow Defib 4 You’ has been involved in the siting of defibrillators at Ludlow Assembly Rooms, Rockspring Community Centre, Homecare, Ludlow Mascall Centre and Culmington Village Hall.
