We recently announced that all office staff had undertaken basic first aid training and as part of this they learnt CPR and how to use and operate an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). Corin Dudley, the managing director took it upon himself to safeguard his employees even further by investing in a brand-new AED machine to be housed within the CDS Electrical offices.
The AED unit has now been delivered and has been installed in our entrance corridor at Unit F1, Chaucer Business Park, Dittons Road, Polegate, BN26 6QH. Despite the AED being within the building - this can be used by the general public during our opening hours of 07:00 AM until 17:00 PM, Monday to Friday. Please note, that the offices are closed at weekends and bank holidays.
Our AED has been given the imaginative name of SECAS004092/A and it is visible on the HeartSafe website along with all other available AED’s. We hope that you should never have to use one but it’s a good idea to be aware of where your nearest one might be - https://www.heartsafe.org.uk/AED-Locations
The location of the device can be seen on the map below. The orange heart indicates that the AED is only available during our opening hours. As you can see, AED’s are unfortunately few and far between. The nearest AED to our offices was 1.4 miles away.
