  • Five new defibrillators for Angus

St John Scotland's team of First Responders in Angus, along with our other supporters in the area, have helped install five new defibrillators across the county. The life-saving devices are accessible 24/7, and can be used by any member of the public in the event of cardiac arrest.

The installation of the defibrillators was made possible through fundraising by local charities Montrose Inner Wheel and the Rotary Club. Volunteers from our First Responders group will act as guardians for the defibrillators, checking them regularly to ensure they are still in working order and able to be used at a moment's notice.

This weekend, the defibrillators were officially unveiled, while the First Responders, alongside members of Montrose Emergency Services Group, showed members of the public how to use the devices, and offered training in life-saving CPR.

The five new defibrillators have been installed in Montrose (at the Access Office in the High Street, Robert Ritchie Hi-Fi, Borrowfield Community Centre, and Hillside Post Office), and at Southesk Court in Ferryden. They will soon be joined by more of the devices, with the aim that most people in the Angus towns of Montrose, Ferryden, Hillside and Craigo will live within half a mile of a life-saving defibrillator.
