Thanks to the wonderful folk of B.Braun Medical Ltd, we've now got a defibrillator on the Farm. This is fantastic news for staff, volunteers, visitors and, of course, the local community!
On Tuesday 29 November, the wonderful team from Sheffield-based B.Braun Ltd delivered a state-of-the-art defibrillator to Whirlow Hall Farm Trust. Whilst we hope we never have to use it, this is a really important event for us - the recovery chances of a victim of sudden cardiac arrest are hugely improved if they can be quickly hooked up to a defibrillator. If that can be done within a minute of collapse then the survival rate is better than 90%! It really might be the difference between life and death.
The arrival of the defibrillator is fantastic news for the staff, volunteers and visitors to the Trust. But it's also very important for the local community - we've made it accessible to all, and are telling our neighbours where it is so they can get hold of it if needs-be.
So, from everyone at Whirlow to everyone at B.Braun Medical Ltd - thank you!
