Recently I have undertaken with the help of a local business to install defibrillators into each area within Blythe. Brandwood clinic, which is a new local business in conjunction with West Midlands Ambulance service, have been kind enough to donate the use of the defibrillator to residents in Monkspath. I believe it is an essential tool which can help all of the community and help save lives. I hope to have the next unit installed soon in Cheswick Green, with help from the Parish Council. This unit will be available 24/7 with the use of an outside locked wall mount for use by all residents. Over the next few months, I will also be arranging to get as many residents trained as possible, so that they know how to use the new machines and to help improve first aid across the area. I extend my thanks to West Midlands Ambulance Service, who will also be providing this training, for all of their help and efforts. I will continue to work closely with them to raise awareness in schools and businesses of the vital importance of being first aid and defibrillator trained.
I can also confirm that the first training session will be held @ Brandwood on Monday the 25th of July @ 6pm
