Lytham’s life saving defibrillator, located prominently near The Taps on Henry Street, is back in action just in time for the Christmas light switch-on this Saturday, 18th November! After a brief hiatus for pad replacement, it’s now snug in its cabinet, ready to help if needed.
Cheryl Pickstock, Interim Community Resuscitation Manager Cumbria and Lancashire Area, expressed her thanks and appreciation, ‘It’s great to see public access defibrillators in the Lytham St Annes area and companies such as Lytham St Anne’s Skip Hire being so proactive to provide an Automated External defibrillator (AED) to the community. Cardiac arrest is different to a heart attack where there is no warning and therefore often happens in a public place, so having public access defibrillators in the community really does save lives.’
A huge thank you to all who made this possible!
Let’s make this Christmas celebration even brighter and safer for our community. See you at the Christmas light switch-on!
