A new defibrillator has been installed in the north of Woodbridge.
The new defibrillator (PAD) has been installed in the Methodist Church in St John’s Street.
It has been registered with the East of England Ambulance Service and joins the other seven defibrillators around the town,
These are placed at the Riverside Theatre, Woodbridge School, the Evangelical Church, St Mary’s Church Centre, the Cruising Club and two at Co-op stores.
Woodbridge town councillor, Sheena Rawlings, was on hand to welcome the new defibrillator to the church.
Rev Martin Dawes, the minister of the church, and also one of the town pastors said: “Defibrillators are an important part of the arrangements for certain types of critical heart emergencies.
“This PAD will enable our church first aiders and the Town Pastors as well as members of the public to offer one more important capability to their response.”
