EUROSPAR launches defibrillator at every Mayo outlet

Fri, Aug 04, 2017

EUROSPAR Belmullet and EUROSPAR Swinford have launched a new community initiative defibrillator at every EUROSPAR supermarket, which aims to provide a life-saving defibrillator outside their stores. 

RTÉ’s Michael Lyster was on hand to help launch the initiative this week at the Radisson Blu St Helen’s Hotel, Dublin with Malachy Hanberry, EUROSPAR managing director and David Menzies, co chair and medical director, Cardiac First Responders Ireland. Michael suffered a cardiac arrest in 2015 and had to be resuscitated by the National Ambulance Service using a defibrillator, so he fully understands the importance of publicly accessible defibrillators in our communities. He said, “I’m delighted to help launch the defibrillator at every EUROSPAR Supermarket initiative as this equipment can really mean the difference between life and death. Having a defibrillator in a public space raises the profile of heart disease and ensures that people know where to find one when an emergency occurs. I look forward to the day when each EUROSPAR has a defibrillator in place.”
