Defibrillators To Be Put In Old Phone Boxes


Share this article


A volunteer group is fitting Defibrillators in old Irish telephone boxes.

The idea is to make the AED locations easier to identify in towns and villages across Ireland.

Damien Baker from Heart of Ireland says the first one was installed in Killarney two years ago.

"We're working on a project to see phone box defibrillators rolled out right across the country.

"A group of us from Killarney identified that there was a lack of awareness around the locations around where public access defibrillators are.

"We're working in partnership with groups all across the country to see public access Defibrillators placed in phone boxes (to) make people more aware of their locations".

The group says they hope to see a national roll out "over the next few years."
