A new Defibrillator at Gorseinon Police Station
Thanks to Gorseinon Town Council and CARIAD a Defibrillator
has been installed at Gorseinon police station.
CARIAD has supplied 500 defibrillators to schools, communities and CFR teams since its launch in 2012. In addition, CARIAD has supplied or maintained 16 other defibrillators in the Gorseinon area – and a number of which have already been used and saved lives in the local community.
To mark the event, which took place on Friday 3 March 2017, local dignitaries attended for the unveiling. CARIAD was launched by Sherilyn Hamilton-Shaw to raise awareness and funding to help provide seven schools in the Llanelli area with life-saving training and defibrillators – it then became a registered charity the following year.
Sergeant Phil Morris said:
“This is an excellent initiative and we are very grateful to CARIAD, who do brilliant work across Wales. The Defibrillator, which has been purchased by Gorseinon Town Council, will be placed outside the police station so it will be available to serve the whole community.
“We hope that we never need to use this device, but it is comforting to know that we have such an innovative and vital piece of kit within the station. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for attending today and showing support.”
CARIAD continues to grow working closely with the Welsh Ambulance Service and Community First Responder teams across Wales. For more information visit: www.mycariad.org
The apparatus was purchased by the Gorseinon Town Council and placed on the outside of the police station for the use of the whole community.
