Setter of HeartSafe®. Their plan, already formulated was to place HeartSafe® cabinets and defibrillators throughout the market town of Frome. Initially, 20 locations were identified with the numbers increasing as the years progressed.
Working with South West Ambulance Service, Clive and his colleagues, training awareness sessions were set up at each public access defibrillator site once they were installed and commissioned. The project became one of the most respected and beneficial medical support initiatives in the region.
Over the years, all Schools were approached and offered CPR training by the Friends of Frome Hospital working with teams of trained/qualified experts. Installing defibrillators is only one part of the Friends of Frome Hospital areas of support for the community. A close association has continued with HeartSafe® who are at hand to help in any way they can when called upon and undertake without charge awareness training of the use of a defibrillator.
