Defibrillator allocated to Killinchy CC from Sport NI
We were successful in the ‘Sport NI Defibrillator for Sport Programme’ and have been allocated an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). This is a sophisticated , reliable, safe computerised device that delivers a controlled electric shock and is used to treat victims who experience a cardiac arrest (when the heart stops pumping and are unconscious).
This AED is for the whole community and we decided it would be best placed somewhere central – and where better than the local pub! Thanks to Balloo House for agreeing to this to be mounted on the wall and suppling the weather-proof enclosure. For more info on AEDs please visit https://www.resus.org.uk/faqs/faqs-defibrillators/
