TPMD has made its life-saving AED defibrillator available to the public in case of an emergency.
The defibrillator is kept on one of TPMD’s fifteen working sites in Ramsgate or Broadstairs, and South East Coast Ambulance Service (SECAmb) is kept informed of its location.
Its location can also be found by users of the First Responder App.
An AED is a device that gives the heart an electric shock when someone’s heart has stopped (cardiac arrest).
Ambulances have them on board, but using an AED in the minutes before an ambulance arrives can double someone’s chances of survival.
