Little Hearts, Bright Futures

On Monday this week we invited the Mayor of St Albans to visit our nursery to show him our brand new Automated External Defibrillator.

The Full Moons enjoyed some time talking to the Mayor and asking questions. He showed the children his Mayoral Chain and described what each different symbol represented. The Mayor had a tour of our setting and even let our Manager, Danielle try on his chain!

We are so thankful the Mayor could visit our setting and for the opportunity to show him how the AED works and how much of an impact it will have in our community.

What is an Automated External Defibrillator?
According to the British Heart Foundation (BHF), there are more than 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests every year in the UK. 20% of these happen in public places. What’s more, 270 cardiac arrests occur in UK schools each year.

A defibrillator plays an essential role in the chances of bringing someone back from an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Using one in addition to quality CPR can increase the odds of someone’s survival from around 6% to 74%. The device is registered with the local ambulance service, who can direct 999 callers to the defibrillator and the code to access it, meaning vital treatment can commence prior to the ambulance arriving.
