Pumping Marvellous wins £10K fund for AED’s
A 10k scoop by Pumping Marvellous having won the race for the Gannett Award. The Gannett Foundation is a charitable foundation associated with the Lancashire Telegraph. We are immensely pleased with such a large sum of money to spend on life saving equipment which is badly needed in the East Lancashire area. We will be working with the North West Ambulance Service through the Chain of Survival Committee which is responsible for coordinating AED mapping. Nick our founder sits on this committee and will ensure that all the AED’s we install will be mapped through the NWAS network. This will ensure that when people dial 999 the emergency operator will be able to direct the responder to the AED. Working with NWAS we will also be working out where to place them from an evidence based incident / risk assessment so that the AED’s give as much accessibility as possible. Every school will also be contracted to leaflet drop within a 1min 30secs radius of the AED location ensuring that everybody knows where these are, increasing awareness. We will also train a set of first responders for each of the schools and provide them with CPR and AED training.
