LIFE-SAVING equipment has now been installed at Rubery Community and Leisure Centre.

Staff have been celebrating the launch of the new 24-hour community public access defibrillator which was kindly donated by West Midland Ambulance Service while the cabinet was donated by the Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation.

Residents have also been invited to an automatic external defibrillator and cardiopulmonary resuscitation awareness evening on Monday (June 29), between 6pm and 6.45pm, at the Rubery Community and Leisure Centre, on Holywell Lane.

At the event, organised by Rubery Community and Leisure Centre’s committee members, there will be demonstrations on what to do if someone has a cardiac arrest.

It is hoped the equipment will give people in and around the area the best chance of survival in the event someone has a cardiac arrest.
