Local British charity 'PALS' donates again to Mazarrón

The local British charity 'PALS' has made another donation to the town of Mazarrón, this time in the form of medical equipment comprising 9 defibrillators (7 manual and 2 mobile units).

The speed of availability of a defibrillator to a person suffering a heart attack is a critical factor in the rate of survival - the town has thirty personnel trained to use such equipment, comprising those in the civil protection agencies and the Spanish Red Cross (the latter, incidentally, issued a call recently for additional volunteers to join its life-saving work), in an efficient way to aid with cardiac resusciation.
