Defibrillator for Terry Reserve
Albion Park Soccer Club is pleased to announce that our Club has purchased a Defibrillator for Terry Reserve.
Cardiac arrests are not just restricted to the elderly or high risk groups. A cardiac arrest can occur in children due to drowning or choking, receiving an electric shock, respiratory related medical conditions such as asthma and anaphylaxis, trauma, poison or congenital abnormalities.
Having a defibrillator on hand at Terry Reserve can make the difference in the first few minutes of a sudden cardiac arrest incident. They are easy to use, maintain and can save a life prior to ambulance arrival.
Our Club acknowledges the advantage of having easy access to automated external defibrillators wherever large groups of people gather, including sporting communities.
