IF YOU fell ill while out and about in Frodsham, would there be trained first-aiders and equipment nearby to help you?
Frodsham Town Council is checking out the quality of existing first-aid provision in public and is seeking feedback on improvements.
Town Clerk, Alison Kunaj has sent a letter sent out to various groups including: police, fire and rescue and ambulance services; Rocksavage and Ineos Chlor; Rotary Club; local schools, churches and retailers; petrol filling stations; St John Ambulance; Love Frodsham business link; Scouts and all groups affiliated to Frodsham Community Centre.
The letter – which will also go to Western Cheshire Primary Care Trust, doctors surgeries and pharmacies and Cheshire West and Chester Council – says town council ideas include enabling first-aid training for the community and perhaps making defibrillators available at strategic locations around Frodsham for use in the case of sudden cardiac arrest.
Town Councillors Andrew Dawson, John Maddock and Dennis Taylor have formed a special working group and want to hear from people before May 31 “to test whether what we suggest makes sense, is desired and feasible and to help us work up our plans.”
