Westward Scania are pleased to announce the provision of a new cardiac defibrillator accessible at Westward Filling Station.
Joe Crann (from Westward Scania) said ".. When we looked at getting a defibrillator for our Scania workforce, we decided that it would be a nice gesture to have it accessible to members of the Strokestown community ... as there are security concerns with out-door defibrillators and more importantly many non-functioning ones out there, we have placed it indoors in the Westward Filling station shop ..."
Pictured at the handover of the new unit are members of Westward's Health & Safety Committee: Aidan Feeney, Gabriel Fleming, Stevie Lawson, Westward Filling Station, Anne Murphy & Joe Crann who are fully trained in CPR.
Beautiful and historic Strokestown, a focal point of Ireland's Hidden Heartlands, is perfectly situated halfway across Ireland:
* approximately 90 minutes from the hustle & bustle of Dublin (and Ireland's Ancient East) and Galway (on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way).
* just 40 minutes from Ireland West Airport in Knock.
