Doddies at the ready to help save lives

Dodd & Co are delighted to have invested in new defibrillators for both Penrith and Carlisle offices with one now available in each location.

With more and more public and private buildings installing defibrillators in a bid to help save lives, Dodd & Co have jumped onboard to ensure they’re up to speed and that help would be close at hand should it ever be needed. When someone has a cardiac arrest, every second counts – and having access to a defibrillator can mean the difference between life and death, with evidence showing they can triple the chances of survival.

Dodds are also pleased to have been able to offer Basic Life Saving Skills training to their staff – all 171 of them! The growing firm felt it was extremely important to ensure that as many people as possible felt confident using a defibrillator and in giving assistance should the need ever arise.

Sue and Ross Wallace from Lakes First Aid provided some excellent and very engaging emergency first aid training courses in short one hour sessions across both their Carlisle and Penrith offices. Fiona Watson from the Dodd & Co Tax team said “The defibrillator training course was really useful; it gave us clear steps to follow and confidence that this knowledge and prompt actions could save lives. The defibrillators are an amazing piece of equipment and very easy to use when needed.” Dodd & Co have a long history and ethos of continually developing their ‘know how’ to stay up to date with the latest­ pro-active advice and this is no different when it comes to health and safety.

Heidi Marshall, Partner with Dodd & Co said “We are delighted to now have defibrillators to hand in both of our offices. Finding a person unresponsive is something everyone hopes they never have to deal with, but having the training and equipment gives our staff the knowledge and confidence to act fast should anyone ever need assistance.”
