Shoreham FC have taken the front foot to make sure that all their club officials know how to use the clubs AED and the procedure, if an emergency ever arises.
Each club officials has taken the FA’s online “Sudden Cardiac Arrest” course, as well as a mandatory St Johns Ambulance video on the use of an AED in an emergency. The club has also provided each member with an Emergency Action Pack.
We hope the club never has to use an AED but making sure all club officials know what to do if an emergency ever arises. We hope other clubs are doing a similar project and for those clubs that don’t own an AED we ask them to look for the relevant grants etc in order to get one.
