A FOURTH public access defibrillator has been installed in Penarth outside The Windsor pub.

The Welsh Hearts Charity installed the public access defibrillator, which is available 24/7 and is part of the S.A. Brain and Co Ltd and the Welsh Hearts/Calonnau Cymru partnership.

The aim of the three year charity partnership is to supply life-saving defibrillators and CPR/defibrillator training to each of the Welsh brewing company's 104 managed pubs across Wales.

Each Brains managed house is already at the hub of their respective cities or local communities and now they will be able to help the public with these devices.

The partnership between Brains Brewery and Welsh Hearts aims to support the future ambition, that every facility in Wales, no matter its size, will be no more than 100m from access to a life-saving defibrillator.

Sharon Owen, charity director of Welsh Hearts, said “This initiative complements the ambitious work of Welsh Hearts in communities throughout Wales. We believe the impact on lives will be far-reaching, as lives should not be lost due to a lack of a public access defibrillator in the event of an emergency.

"Defibrillators should be available everywhere. We are excited to be working with S.A. Brain and Co Ltd, as they are at the heart of communities across Wales.”
