We are very proud to announce that Buxton JFC alongside Buxton Community School PTA, Buxton Cricket Club and High Peak Athletics Club have raised funds to make a defibrillator publicly available at Temple Fields for the local community.
By using a defibrillator before an ambulance arrives, you can significantly increase someone’s chance of survival.
According to the British Heart Foundation:
‘To help someone who is in cardiac arrest effectively, a defibrillator needs to be found as quickly as possible. For every minute it takes for the defibrillator to reach someone and deliver a shock, their chances of survival reduce by up to 10%.’
Please raise awareness of this within our community. A massive thank you goes to all involved in making this happen.
