Lingwood Security Management now have a defibrillator on site at our head office in Heysham, which we purchased in conjunction with SCS Logistics LTD & Lancaster Training Services.
A defibrillator also known as a ‘defib’ or automated external defibrillator (AED) can mean the difference between life and death for the victim of a sudden cardiac arrest. The chance of survival can be tripled by providing a person in cardiac arrest with early defibrillation.
It was brought to our attention that there was no defib around our local area that could be accessed 24 hours a day by the many business located in the Heysham area. With our premises being constantly manned, we are the ideal location for the device, as we are able to give access 24/7 to anyone needing immediate use of the defib.
Anyone requiring the use of the defib in an emergency can proceed to our head office located at 6 Penrod Way, Heysham LA3 2UZ. Access is via the controlled security gate – just press the buzzer for entry and alert the guards that you require immediate use of the defib.
The defib was sourced by Atlas Compliance Training (ATC) who also provide the training on how to operate the defib.
