Tre Pol & Pen is committed to supporting the local community and we therefore carefully select our charities based on the needs of those around us. It is for that reason that we are currently raising money for The Community HeartBeat Trust whose aims are ‘to help and support communities in the correct provision of defibrillators’ as defib’s are few and far between in our local area.
Defibrillators (also known as AEDs) are medical devices that help and support a rescue for a patient in Cardiac Arrest. They achieve this by applying a current of electricity across the heart to stop it, allowing it to reconfigure automatically. Defibrillators are not "Heart Re-starters" - any sign indicating this is wrong!
