AED First Aid Training

Dear members,

I don’t know if people are aware of what happened a few weeks ago in Douglas Tennis Club during their open tournament but in a nutshell a man’s life was saved due to the club having a defibrillator and the fact that his opponent was trained how to use it. (please see links for further details)
Our club has a defibrillator which we purchased a number of years ago.  At that time, we also trained up 20 or so members on how to use it and on basic first aid. However, we were not able to retrain and therefore re-certify these members due to financial constraints.
I am appealing to all members who have trained/certified through their work or other clubs, could they let us know, so that perhaps we can put a list up of those trained to use the defibrillator, so that if the need ever arises there will be no time wasted in figuring out who knows how to use it.  With cardiac conditions time is the key to saving lives.
Anyone who is interested in putting their names on a list please email me on blaithin.kiernan@gmail.com
Kind regards,
Bláithín
Chairperson
