Muchalls Village Association have set up a fundraising page in the hopes of raising money to buy a defibrillator for the village.
The group need to raise £1,200 for the potentially life-saving equipment, and have so far raised £140.
A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest. This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it’s an essential life saving step in the chain of survival. If you come across someone who has had a cardiac arrest, it’s vital to call 999 and start CPR. Then you should find out if there is a defibrillator nearby.
