The cardiac charity SADS UK has assisted St Clements High School in order to place an automated external defibrillator on its premises.
Supporting the national SADS UK Big Shock campaign, the school was keen to place a defibrillator on their premises as they understand how important it is to provide prompt treatment when a person suffers a cardiac arrest. Training was given to the students and staff by the East of England Ambulance Service.
Anne Jolly, Founder of SADS UK, the Ashley Jolly SAD Trust, said: “SADS UK is pleased that St Clements High School will benefit from having a defibrillator on the premises to restart the heart if there is a cardiac arrest on the premises.
“Last year, SADS UK Patron Dr Hilary Jones (Good Morning Britain) presented Lifesaver Awards to staff at two senior schools, who had saved the lives of teenage boys using their school defibrillator.
“This year, two more teenage boys were saved by teachers at their school; this is why SADS UK is so passionate about putting this lifesaving equipment in schools.”
