People are at the heart of our business and it’s important to us that we look after their safety and wellbeing. So we’re pleased to share the news that we’ve recently installed a Defibrillator at our Newmilns premises which can be used by employees and local people alike.

There are many defibrillators available in public places such as train stations, shopping centres and airports. These defibrillators are often known as public access defibrillators (PAD) as anyone can use them in an emergency.

Our Defibrillator is  located outside the main workshop entrance and the unit is registered with the Scottish Ambulance Service. Callers to the 999 service from the local community will be advised of its location and combination in times of emergency.

Defibrillators are a vital piece of equipment in the event of a cardiac arrest and would like to make local residents aware of its existence – these units save lives so please spread the word.
