Saltend Chemicals Park now has a defibrillator on site.
The potentially life-saving equipment was delivered as part of Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart’s Community Access Defibrillators for East Yorkshire (CADEY) campaign.
Mr Stuart launched the campaign in 2018, with the support of Yorkshire Ambulance Service, after identifying numerous communities across his constituency that did not possess one of the devices.
Saltend was identified as a site that could benefit from a defibrillator because of the large number of people working on the park at any one time.
Mr Stuart visited Saltend to hand over the defibrillator with representatives from HFR Solutions, which funded the device, and teams are now being trained how to use it.
In response to the donation by Mr Stuart and the fire service, px Group, BP Air Products and TUK teamed up to fund another four defibrillators to be donated to local communities.
This was then match-funded by HFR Solutions, meaning local communities will benefit from eight defibrillators in total.In case you missed it £180 million green hydrogen facility set for Saltend 7th June 2023 Read more px Group celebrates 5 years of Saltend ownership 15th March 2023 Read more Saltend Chemicals Park secures another site partner as part of Humberside’s Carbon Capture Storage future 7th April 2022 Read more
