AED Placed at Walsall Golf (Press Release)."Walsall Golf club gets shocking treatment from local firm."
Walsall golf club has made its members and staff a HOLE lot safer thanks to purchasing a life saving defibrillator. The club had help from Safeaid Services a Willenhall based first aid training provider. Safeaid Services sourced the Defibrillator and trained staff at the club including the Golf Pros and green keepers. The machine is designed to shock a patients heart that suffers a cardiac arrest and can dramatically increase chance of survival.
Stuart Clowes Lead instructor for Safeaid Services said, We are delighted that Walsall Golf club decided to purchase a Defibrillator and have an accredited training course through ourselves. The club has been proactive in trying to ensure the safety of all visitors to their lovely golf club. Currently only a third of UK golf courses have this life saving equipment. Early intervention with the unit along with good CPR has the ability to increase survival rates from 6% up to 74%. We are passionate about increasing survival rates from sudden cardiac arrest in our area. We have some very special deals on the units allowing us to supply them at a much lower cost than normal. We would urge any organization that needs advice to contact us. Anybody requiring further information on Defib units can contact safeaid services Info@safeaidservices.co.uk
Walsall Golf Club House Chairman, Simon Manton, said: As one of the leading golf clubs in the Midlands we take a pro-active approach whether its in maintaining a beautiful and challenging golf course, offering fantastic facilities in our bar and restaurant or ensuring the health and well-being of our members and visitors. We were aware of the importance of a defibrillator for giving the best possible chance of survival and eventual recovery following a cardiac arrest. We therefore invited tenders from the leading defibrillator suppliers in the UK and the SafeAid package offering a quality product with excellent training at an affordable price was the clear choice of our selection panel. SafeAid were professional throughout and their training was first class. Whilst we hope we never have to use the defibrillator we are more than ready to do so should the need arise.
