“The defibrillators will be used by the first response team operating locally as they try to provide fast assistance in case of emergencies.

 “In the current climate with global pandemic threatening the lives of many, responders – trained by and working alongside the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) –  play an essential role in the local community.”
