24 Hour Accessible Community Defibrillators
Lets hope you don't need one...but if you do, then Brynmawr Rotary has installed the first of the planned 4 or 5 Defibrillators in our community
Brynmawr Rotary believes our communities need defibrillators that are accessible 24/7. We've taken into account the needs for the right equipment, the right support, the right adherence to liabilities and governance, community awareness and training programmes are planned to be deliver throughout the year and continual updates offered.
We are hugely passionate about community defibrillation in all its forms, and to celebrate 50 years of service in our community are aiming to provide 3 more defibrillators before June 2018 in the Nantyglo and Brynmawr areas.
This project is not about just a defibrillator in the community, but one that is part of a resilient process, addressing our communities needs, and fully backed by Governance. We are working with what we believe is the leading community defibrillator charity in the UK, Community heartbeat Trust who are recognised by ambulance services, councils, other community groups and sports governing bodies as the 'gold standard', They have set many of the standards now being adopted by other organisations.
