LIFESAVING CLASS: First responders Ron Ridge and Jack Squires flank (l-r) Rob Digby from the Baytree Centre, Scott Harrison from Total Security Services, Andrew Jonas from the Baytree Centre, Sophie Brittleton from The Hair Company, PCSO Matt Grimwood, and Richard Beard and Joe Barnes, both from Boots

 

LIFESAVERS are calling on the public to learn the simple skills that could keep someone alive as a new defibrillator arrives in Brentwood High Street.

The emergency equipment will be mounted on the wall at Boots pharmacy where it will be readily available to the public at any time of the day or night in case of an emergency.

The High Street pharmacy also funded the installation of the device.

Defibrillators deliver a controlled electric shock of up to 1,000 volts through the chest wall to the heart to restore a normal heartbeat after cardiac arrest.

Although, as first responder Ron Ridge explains, not all of that charge will reach the heart.

"When you shock somebody, only about 25 per cent of that gets to the heart so putting the pads in the right place is very important," he said, while training town centre-based workers at Eclipse nightclub earlier this month.

"The idea is that anyone, even if you're out and haven't got any equipment, can take a defibrillator and help save a life.

"The more people we can help train to use the equipment the better."

According to the British Heart Foundation, when someone goes into cardiac arrest every minute without receiving CPR and defibrillation reduces their chance of survival by 10 per cent.

Eclipse manager Steve Vaughan said the nightclub was pleased to host the afternoon training sessions.

He said: "It's been fantastic, it's really helped show me how easy it is to use. We hope we don't ever have to use it – but we want to be ready just in case."

Costing around £1,600, the defibrillator was funded by the Master and Brethren of the Old Brentwoods School Lodge and the Brentwood Association of Safer Licensed Establishments. Brentwood town centre PCSO Matt Grimwood believes the new equipment could help save lives.

He said: "Any member of the public can use them.

"Having seen one near to where I live, I knew it was important. If it saves one life it doesn't matter how much it costs."

Lifesaver honoured for acts of heroism

BRENTWOOD GAZETTE: Thursday, November 24, 2011

 

A RETIRED policeman has been honoured with a national award for saving two lives within a matter of days.

First responder Roy TYZACK, who lives in Navestock Side in Navestock, is being awarded a Resuscitation Certificate by the Royal Humane Society, for his double lifesaving feat in April.

  Mr Tyzack, 64, first went to the aid of Rachel Gordon who had suffered a heart attack at the age of 59 at Kelvedon Hall.

Just nine days before, he revived Bishop Michael Reid, whose heart stopped three times when he had a cardiac arrest at his home in Coxtie Green Road, Pilgrims Hatch.

Speaking about the honour, Mr Tyzack, who serves with the Four Parishes First Response Group, said: "It is quite humbling. It was an amazing feeling to be able to help both of them."

Bishop Reid says he would not have survived without Mr Tyzack rushing to his home. He said: "I will always be grateful to him."

Being A First Responder DOES Save Lives

 

From the Brentwood Recorder and Essex Chronicle

 

 

 

 

April 2011

 

At the AGM it was announced that we have lost several members in the year

Ann, Alan and Vicky, David, Doreen, Christine and Peter, have all left the active side of the group but we hope to be using them on our support functions at Fetes and Fayres.

 

Derek, Ron and Roy have trained as Heartstart trainers to move that programme into the local community.

 

Ron Presented a Digital Projector to Wendy (CPM) for her to use as part of her role, this was donated by the Venturer Lodge no 7897 as part of the funds raised through the year, the Master made us his annual Charity, and also donated funds into our general account.

 

 

March 2011

As part of our support for the Heartstart Campaign the Venturer Lodge no 7897 have given us £500 to pay for Essex Community Partnership Manager's Digital Projector and also towards group funds

 

Whilst Driving along the Ongar road on his way to the Ambulance Station to replenish his equipment, Ron one of our Responders arrived at the site of a Road Traffic Collision, he asked the Police if his help was needed and was requested to attend a elderly driver with Chest Pains by the Policeman who was just requesting medical assistance over his radio.. Whilst waiting for the Ambulance Ron got the patient's details and gave him Oxygen as his breathing was laboured and the patient was in pain, he then monitoring his condition to prevent him from getting any worse, on examination the patient was found to have a severely damaged breastbone and was taken to hospital where unfortunately he died 3 days later, from complications resulting from his injuries. after passing his patient to the Ambulance Crew our Responder went on to replenish his Oxygen and other equipment and was available for calls 15 minutes after leaving the scene of the Incident.

 

 

February 2011

The new Rotary club of Kelveden Hatch has made a donation of £125.00 to us as have the Wives of Blackmore who held an auction and raised £300.00 for our funds a really big thanks from us all.
