HELENSBURGH Tennis Club has a public access defibrillator.
Situated beside the front door and for use by anyone, member or non-member, it was presented by the Helensburgh & Local District CPR/Defibrillator Association.
It was purchased by the club with a donation to the association, who will maintain the device on the club's behalf.
A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest.
This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it is an essential life saving step in the chain of survival.
