A life-saving piece of equipment has been installed at Exeter City, with the help of the East Devon Grecians.
However, the club needed help in installing the alarmed device, which is located in the CCTV operated area of Red Square, outside the club shop. This is where the mighty East Devon Grecians stepped in as they raised over £300 required for a container for the defibrillator.
The club’s welfare officer Scott Walker, of City Community Trust, said: “When someone has a cardiac arrest, the quicker resuscitation starts the better their chances of survival, so we were keen to get a defibrillator on-site.
“The defibrillator comes with easy to follow spoken instructions inside its case so no special training is needed to use it."
“We are grateful to the donation from the East Devon Grecians to get this life-saving piece of equipment installed at St James Park, not just for supporters and people who use our facilities but for the local community around the stadium.
“We hope it isn’t needed, but it is reassuring to know it is there just in case.”
