At PRM Group we are delighted to announce that we have installed a brand new defibrillator to our Lisburn site.
A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart of someone who is in cardiac arrest. This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it's an essential part in trying to save the life of someone who’s in cardiac arrest.
Located just outside our Transport reception area, the new defibrillator is extremely accessible and automatic, so no training is required for use. As soon as it is activated, the user will be talked through the process by the machine and the Ambulance Service operator on the phone.
The aim of this installation is to ensure maximum safety for our employees and visitors by improving the survival rate of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests and promoting lifesaving skills our staff.
