Defibrillation is one crucial stage in a sequence of events that need to occur for the resuscitation of a victim of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). This sequence, or ‘chain of survival’, starts by summoning the emergency services as soon as possible. The second stage is providing basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (chest compressions alternated with rescue breaths) to keep the victim alive until the third stage (defibrillation) can be performed. The automated external defibrillator (AED) has been described as the single most important development in the treatment of SCA.
Within 500 meters of Glebelands, the population is approximately 3,000. With a primary school next door, a sports centre just meters up the road in addition to the many people that use Glebelands for sports and recreational, the location is ideal.
Even with support from the the "Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund", there's still some fundraising needed to cover the cost of these life saving machines.
ANY support you can provide to help potentially save a life is gratefully received.

About the fundraiser
Garforth, Leeds, United Kingdom
When someone suffers acardiac arrest, prompt action offers their only chance of survival. An immediate 999 call for an ambulance and starting CPR immediately are essential. Most people who survive will have needed a shock from a defibrillator to correct a chaotic heart rhythm.
