Cariad Schools

 Cariad  continues  to support schools across Wales with defibrillators and training to teaching staff & pupils.

 

This number increases monthly with more and more schools contacting us to provide help and guidance. 

 

It is important not only to provide defibrillators and initial training  but also to maintain this support for the period that the defibrillator remains at the school.

 

 

 

 

 

Cardiac arrest affects people of any age without warning,  swift action in the form or early cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillation can help save a life. Survival rates as high as 75% have been reported when a defibrillator was administered swiftly.

 

Defibrillators are  safe and easy to use, they cannot be used in error. The defibrillator will only deliver a shock if it is needed.

 

Schools, particularly secondary schools, are often large complex buildings and getting an ambulance to someone within five minutes to administer a defibrillator is challenging and every minute that goes by significantly decreases the likelihood of recovery.

 

School staff members, and school first-aiders in particular, should be trained to use AEDs, and ensure these skills are kept up-to-date. 

 

 

 

Cariad regulary attends schools to provide defibrillator awareness in a fun and friendly manner to encourage children not to be afraid, and the importance of knowing what to do in an emergency. We recently teamed up with local South Wales radio stations, The Wave and Swansea Sound with our partners Swansea City AFC to promote AED awareness in schools across South West Wales.

Please get in contact with us so that we can attend your school or help provide a defibrillator
