Ballynacally / Lisheen Defib group

Ballynacally Parish Council began the process of providing Defibrillators for their side of the parish in September 2012. Training for cardiac responders was also required and this began in February 2013. Following the first round of training, two AED's were fitted and these units are located in the following areas. Training will continue and include child CPR as well as techniques to use in the event of choking.

ballynacally defib training

Initial training of Cardiac First responders took place over a weekend in February 2013. Groups of 6 were trained over many sessions. Further training took place in 2014 and refresher training will take each year begining in 2015. However practice sessions with a drop in approach will take place regularly. 75 people are now trained in the area

Good Samaritan laws provide legal protection for those who provide first aid in good faith and accept no compensation, it would be expected that users have certifications for AEDs use. When the patient is in cardiac arrest, it is impossible to do more harm than good because the patient will be unlikely to survive without help. Without help - the chance of surviving a cardiac arrest is between 4% to 6%. Don't be afraid your actions will only help. (good Samaritan report here)


The defibrillator's will be checked regularly but if you notice any problems with them, the boxes they are contained in, please contact Ronan at the number below asap, thank you.

If you would like to be trained as a cardiac 1st responder please ring any of these numbers, training can be provided free of charge.










Speed is very important

To a person in cardiac arrest, good quality and immediate CPR is vital, furthermore if a person is in need of defibrillation and receives it withing 2 minutes the survival rate is over 80%

This reduces by 7 to 10% each minute thereafter......
