CADEY is steadily whittling down the number of communities in Beverley and Holderness in need of a publicly accessible defibrillator.
On Friday 23 July, Graham Stuart MP, founder and Chair of the CADEY campaign will be joined by his CADEY Committee to celebrate the launch of CADEY’s latest defibrillator.
Fully funded by CADEY’s generous partner, HFR Solutions, this latest addition to the life-saving devices inspired by CADEY will be installed at the visitors’ centre at Saltend Chemicals Park.
Graham said “CADEY can’t thank HFR Solutions enough for their kind donation which has allowed this publicly accessible defibrillator to be installed at Saltend Chemicals Park. It will mean hundreds of workers at the park, should the worst happen and they suffer a sudden cardiac arrest, will be within a couple of minutes of the defibrillator. At the moment, fewer than 10% of SCA patients survive. This is, in great part, because a defibrillator is not close by. A patient’s chance of survival drops by 10% for every minute defibrillation is delayed.”
