Cardiac Action Group help train the GSPCA to save human lives and use the AED purchased kindly by Investec

Submitted by Steve on 16:44, 20th Apr, 2021 | 0

The GSPCA helps save animals lives 24/7 365 days a year but without our team and supporters we couldn’t achieve so much.

Last year before the pandemic the GSPCA received a number of sessions for our team by Mike Froome from the Cardiac Action Group to help learn and for some refresh their skills in CPR and also use an AED.

The GSPCA were very kindly purchased an AED to have onsite by the wonderful Investec team and although thankfully we haven’t had to put it to use, it is an invaluable piece of equipment to have at our very busy Animal Shelter.
