Callan Bridge Armagh defibrillator

A new life-saving defibrillator has been unveiled at a city estate – thanks to a concerted drive by residents.

The AED is now in placed after door-to-door collections over the past week by the Callanbridge Legarhill Community Association.

Spokesperson Kevin Fields said they were delighted the defibrillator is now in place in the estate and will be on hand if it is needed in the event of an emergency.

Kevin told Armagh I : “The West Armagh Consortium actually put the wheels in motion three years ago.

“They delivered training for 16 people throughout the west of the city through the Neighbourhood Renewal.

“The Callanbridge Legarhill Community generously donated when we called to the doors last week.”

The new defibrillator has been registered with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service and is fully operational.

The essential First Aid device is located at 33/34 Callanbridge Park and will bring peace of mind to residents that it is available if needed.
