Local MP Unveils New Defib

Posted: 06th August 2019 | Written by Super CSS People

On Friday 2nd August, James Cleverly, MP and Chairman of the Conservative Party, (right) officially unveiled the first publicly accessible Defib in Braintree Town Centre.

The CSS Charitable Trust and the Braintree Fund have been working together over the last few months to install 3 publicly accessible defibrillators within the Braintree Town Centre for the benefit of all its residence and visitors.

These have been situated at 14 Manor Street, CM7 3HP (front of CSS Recruitment & Training building), 38 Rayne Road, CM7 2QP (front of CSS Recruitment & Training building) and 28-32 East Street, CM7 3JJ (front of the Archer Community Centre).

The publicly accessible Defibrillators can be accessed 24 hours a day via a locked storage unit. The access code for the storage unit is issued by the East of England Ambulance Service when you dial 999 in the event of an emergency. As they are semi-automatic no training is needed as the device talks you through the procedures step by step.

A box needs to be accessible within a minute of where a victim falls to prevent life-changing damage or death, which can occur in as little as three minutes so you will appreciate why many of these are needed.
