SSG’s defibrillation initiative supports local communities

SSG Training and Consultancy has launched a new initiative to support local community groups by supplying them with defibrillation units.

SSG has pledged that for every delegate booked onto a first aid course, £1 will go towards funding defibrillation units for community groups and organisations.

Earlier this year SSG presented a defibrillation unit to Teign Valley ‘Men in Sheds’ project. Now they have been able to collect enough funding to buy a second unit to support another local organisation. The latest beneficiary of their defibrillation initiative is the Yealm Gig Rowing Group.

Barry Wolstenholme, SSG Senior Health and Safety Trainer, presented the unit and said: “It’s a great feeling to know that every time a delegate books a first aid course with us it’s going to help someone and an organisation. I’m thrilled that we get to help organisations like the Yealm Gig Rowing Club and look forward to seeing who we can help next!”
