BSR provides defibrillator to the village of Oath

BSR is thrilled to have worked alongside the Aller Langport community, including the village of Oath, to provide a defibrillator for the area.

Being based in Somerset, we care deeply about the local communities that live and work alongside us. At our Aller Langport site, we have thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with the community to build long lasting relationships. This beautiful and scenic area is a haven for avid hikers, cyclists, and other outdoor enthusiasts. The picturesque landscapes make it an ideal location for outdoor activities, drawing visitors who enjoy exploring nature, exercising, and experiencing the countryside. However, with increased activity, there's a higher chance of accidents or health emergencies. BSR understands that in a small, remote village, reaching emergency services can take longer, which can be critical for someone who is unwell. Therefore, we were eager to be involved in this project and thrilled to provide financial aid by purchasing a defibrillator for the area.

We are immensely grateful to the Environment Agency for allowing the defibrillator to be placed on their land, as well as for handling the installation and providing the necessary power.

It was wonderful to meet everyone involved before their First Aid training hosted by Lee at JaLee First Aid Training yesterday evening!
