Local estate agents Fraser and Wheeler have helped provide another life saving defibrillator- this time for the residents of Oxton, a hamlet near to the village of Kenton.
On this occasion the machine was jointly funded by Randar Ltd. a local company providing real estate management services.
Ben Fraser of Fraser and Wheeler said that in a situation involving cardiac arrest the timely availability of a defibrillator in the first few minutes really can make the difference between a life lost or one that has been saved. The directors of Fraser and Wheeler all totally support the provision of these wonderful machines in as widespread a way as is possible.
The Oxton defibrillator is in fact the fourth one that has been provided by Fraser and Wheeler-the three previous ones are located at The Manor Council Offices in Dawlish, at The River Exe Floating Cafe/Restaurant and at The Age Concern Centre in Cowick St. Exeter.
A fifth defibrillator has been provided by Fraser and Wheeler for The Turf Hotel Nr. Topsham and that machine is being installed at this moment in time.
