Ridgway Rentals Limited based at St Martins, now have a fully operational defibrillator available for emergency use for their own staff as well as making it available to the local community and general public in the event of a cardiac emergency.

If anyone nearby has the need for the defibrillator, they can call Ridgway and one of their trained staff can take the device to assist in a cardiac emergency.

Ridgway have also registered the defibrillator on the National Defibrillator Network, The Circuit, and it is also connected to the West Midlands Ambulance Service. This will allow it to be found quickly when medical emergencies arise in the surrounding area and more likely to be used in an emergency.

Ridgway Rentals Ltd. MD, Stuart Jones says “While we really hope we never have reason to use this defibrillator, it’s reassuring to know we have one here just in case and that it could help to save someone’s life.”

“There are many local businesses in St Martins and the local area as well as the general public that will now have the benefit of this device so we really want the whole community to know about it and spread the word that it is here and we can assist in the event of an emergency”.

Ridgway Rentals Ltd. operate a Local & Nationwide Plant Hire & Haulage service and have strong ties with the local community of St. Martins since moving to the purpose-built workshop, yard & offices on the Ifton Industrial Estate in January 2011.
