The residents of St Tudy fundraised to raise money for a defibrillator for the village which is located at the St Tudy Community Shop.

A HeartSafe® community is established when a group of people decide that they wish to reduce the odds of dying or not recovering fully from a cardiac arrest by installing an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in a public place thereby giving 24 hour access to this life saving equipment.

Without immediate defibrillation and CPR when cardiac arrest occurs, the chances of survival are less than 5%. With a defibrillator being used on a patient combined with effective CPR, the odds of survival can be increased to 50%.
