Life-Saving Defibrillators Have Been Installed at All Our Parks

16th August 2022


We are pleased to announce that defibrillators have been installed at all our touring and holiday home parks.

These life-saving defibrillators are positioned outside the reception area and will help ensure the best chance of survival in the event of a cardiac arrest when every second counts.

Hopefully, they won't be needed, but we are delighted that we can support our local communities and provide peace of mind to all of our visitors and holiday homeowners.

The defibrillators were supplied to the Shrewsbury-based company by London Hearts who help fund Public Access Defibrillators (PADs) in communities across the UK.

"When someone has a cardiac arrest, timely intervention is the key to survival," explained Paul Perry, Morris Leisure's facilities manager. "By making more defibrillators available, the better the chance of survival for a cardiac arrest victim.

"With the effective and speedy delivery of treatment, survival can be raised to 70 per cent, but this requires CPR chest compressions and the use of a defibrillator. The chance of survival decreases by 10% per minute after a cardiac arrest, so the faster help can be given the better the outcome.

"The units are registered on a national network, connecting defibrillators to NHS ambulance services across the UK, so that in those crucial moments after a cardiac arrest, they can be accessed quickly to help save lives.

"Anyone wishing to use a defibrillator in an emergency, can obtain the keypad code by calling 999 and giving the site address."
