DEFIBRILLATORS FOR LLANYMYNECH & PANT
The community of Llanymynech and Pant has raised funds to provide three defibrillator machines at sites in the village - The Cross Guns, Pant and Pant Memorial Hall. The third will be installed near to the King George V playing field at Llanymynech. There is a machine on the Welsh side of the border at The Dolphin in Llanymynech
The machines are fully automatic and housed in cabinets accessible to the public.
Defibrillators are devices that deliver an electric shock to a person who has suffered a cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest occurs when a person's heart stops beating and these machines can save a person's life.
The Parish Council have previously run training sessions for the use of defibrillators and more sessions are being planned for.
