Two staff members from our Helensburgh pub, near Loch Lomond, in Scotland, have been recognised for their quick response and life-saving actions.
During a November incident at The Henry Bell, shift manager Semone Hindes and team leader Jack Brough (pictured) had to use a defibrillator on a customer who had collapsed.
Their swift actions saved the life of that customer.
The Scottish charity Heartstart Scotland was made aware that the pair had used the defibrillator, with assistance from an off-duty doctor on the premises, while they waited for the ambulance service to arrive.
Consequently, Heartstart Scotland presented both Semone and Jack with a certificate of recognition.
The charity also offered to provide defib training to all staff at the pub – which took place at the end of January.
Semone said: “It is fantastic that all of the team have had the opportunity to train on the defib, thanks to Heartstart Scotland, as we can never predict when it will be needed and who will be on duty at the time.
“The British Heart Foundation is also going to be presenting us with a certificate, in recognition of saving a life, which is lovely.”
