DEFIBRILLATOR
BRIDGEND MASONIC HALL
LOCATED ON STAIRS 
IN MAIN PART OF THE BUILDING

Available to the wider community 
whenever the building is open

This instrument was delivered to the Hall on Wednesday 17th June 2015.  It was purchased from the charity " Welsh Hearts" for 800.  This sum was shared equally following successful propositions from Ogmore and Adare Lodges.  

The funds were available thanks to the bequest made to these Lodges from the estate of the late and much respected W Bro Kenneth Viles.

Chairman of the Trustees, W Bro C Hugh Thomas PGStdB, offered a warm welcome to the director of the charity, Sharon Owen, and her team as shown in the photograph and of course to the members of our community who had come to learn about the Defibrillator.  

This welcome was followed by a short address from Sharon Owen about the conditions indicating this kind of treatment and went on to run a training session to demonstrate the use of the apparatus.

The Bridgend Masonic building now has this important item of equipment available permanently.  Another training session will be arranged for the Autumn to expand the numbers of Brethren capable of assisting should an incident occur. 

Time is of the essence in such incidents and confidence and knowledge in the use of the Defibrillator is paramount.

Those Brethren who would like to know more and perhaps form part of the group of trained operators are invited to add their names to the list for the next training session.  Please be assured that no pressure will be exerted on those who, after seeing the demonstrations, choose not to participate.  This is very much a personal decision.
