Defibrillator at The Victoria Theatre

The Victoria Theatre in Halifax is now home to its own defibrillator – the only piece of equipment that will restore the heart rhythm.

Training has now taken place on how staff will use the device if someone was to go into cardiac arrest.

The charity SADS UK has worked with the theatre in order to assist placing the defibrillator on its premises.

Founder of the charity, Anne Jolley, said: “SADS UK is please that The Victoria Theatre will benefit from having a defibrillator on the premises to restart the heart if there is a cardiac arrest.”
