Please scroll to the bottom of this email for a full list of defibrillator locations

It is estimated that around 100,000 people die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest in the UK each year and, while CPR saves the lives of around nine per cent, if CPR is used alongside a defibrillator the chance of survival increases to 50 %.
As a community retailer, Central England Co-operative already has defibrillators sited at a number of its outlets, but announced further funding for the phased installation of hundreds of defibrillators over the next year, which will be installed by long-term partner Oak Electrical.
The business is working with ambulance services to identify the most suitable sites for equipment and, where possible, these will be in external locations allowing community use in an emergency at any time of day or night.

Every installation will include familiarisation sessions available to staff at Society outlets, nearby business, local residents and community groups.
