Law firm's investment to save lives

By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 13 Nov 2017

LAW firm Bridge McFarland has installed defibrillator machines in office receptions around the region.

Staff members have been trained how to use them, and the team is now keen to ensure people in the local community know where they are.

As part of the roll-out, in partnership with Lives, people are also being invited to take part in a 15 minute session to learn the basics of CPR in the coming weeks. 

Sessions will be held in Grimsby at the South  St Mary’s Gate office, between 11am and 2pm on Friday. 
To book call 01472 311711.

On November 28, sessions will be held in Market Rasen between 11.30am and 1.30pm. To book there, call 01673 843723.

Practice manager Adele Collis said: “As a firm we take the safety of our staff, clients and community very seriously. The statistics leave no room for debate; if good CPR and defibrillation are performed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest the chance of survival increases by over 50 per cent. We would urge other local businesses to install these machines, it’s definitely better to be safe than sorry, and I for one feel better knowing that the machine is there and ready to be used.”
