A new public access defibrillator has been fitted outside of the clubhouse at Rhiw'r Ddar. The new device has been provided by the Club and a generous donation from former Cardiff City manager, Neil Warnock, a good friend of the Club. Thanks go to former Chair, John Newberry for his help securing the donation.
Having a public access defibrillator available in an emergency can be lifesaving. By using a defibrillator on someone within three minutes of them going into cardiac arrest, their chance of survival is increased to around 75 per cent.
The defibrillator is situated on the outside wall of the clubhouse, within easy reach. It is also well positioned should it be needed in an emergency for the local community.
In addition the first team have a defibrillator at every match. In the event of a person suffering a sudden cardiac arrest, there is less than 10 minutes in which to help save their life through CPR and the use of a defibrillator.
We hope to never use it, but are proud to provide it if the circumstances ever arise.
