The RMGC has purchased an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for the benefit if its members and visitors. For those of you unfamiliar with such a device, it is to be used in emergency situations involving a cardiac arrest.
The AED is located in a case on the right hand side of the main exit to the RMGC clubhouse. The case is fitted with anti-tamper seals and an alarm will sound when the AED is removed from the case. Therefore emergency use only, please.
The AED is fully automatic, and has voice instructions to guide even those with no First Aid knowledge through its operation. Further information can be obtained by following the following link Powerheart G5 AED.
While operation of the device in an emergency would, where possible be undertaken by a member of staff, we would stress that time is critical in such instances. When staff are not present, the initiative of members will be required in order to respond most effectively to such an emergency.
Any questions regarding this matter should be directed to the RMGC Office.
