POTENTIAL BRIGG LIFE-SAVER INSTALLED BY FREEMASONS
The Freemasons of Brigg have installed a defibrillator on the outside of their building on Cary Lane within the town centre.
It will provide emergency support to anyone suffering from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SAC).
"Using one within three minutes can increase the chance of survival to over 70% (according to the LIVES website), and so this central location is ideal for our community," the Freemasons say.
The Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) was purchased by the Freemasons and is under the supervision of LIVES, who respond to medical emergencies prior to the arrival of the ambulance service.
"The movement of the AED units is a province-wide initiative and will result in over 20 units being available for public access across the county," the Freemasons add.
