We fund public access defibrillators to protect and save lives
The RRMC appeals to businesses, Schools, Sporting Organisations, Community Groups and members of the public to help raise funds for vitally needed PAD equipment for their location. Are you able to make a donation or hold a fundraising event? We are a charity dedicated to this cause.
Across the UK 2,000 people die each week after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), which is the equivalent of one person every 5 minutes. This statistic includes one child daily in our schools.
According to the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) a shock by defibrillation administered within one minute increases the chance of survival by 90 per cent.
The survival rate without being shocked decreases by 10 per cent and 14 per cent with every passing minute.
The RRMC has secured in excess of 250 public access defibrillator (PAD) sites across Cornwall and Devon including many schools. Please give whatever you can afford to help protect and save lives.
