Public Defibrillator now at Allendale Community Centre
Wimborne Rotary in partnership with private donors and together with a grant from East Dorset District Councillors David Morgan and David Parker has provided a defibrillator for public use in an emergency.
The defibrillator, supplied by the Community Heartbeat Trust, is prominently located outside and near the front door of the Allendale Community Centre in Hanham Road in Wimborne.
After a recent Rotary meeting at the Allendale there was an informal launch of the unit by Councillor David Morgan and Rotary President Sue Young, with Rotarian John Purchase also in attendance.
Commenting on the availability of the new unit, Councillor David Morgan said, “I am delighted to support the installation of this unit from my Ward budget as it provides a very useful community facility”.
If needed in an emergency the unit carries full instructions for its use and once opened it delivers verbal instructions to the user to ensure the maximum benefit for the patient and the safety of those operating the unit
Sue Young, President of Wimborne Rotary, commented, “together with the support and contributions from local Councillors and private donors our plans have now been implemented and this new equipment is in place and ready for use”.
