HFR Solutions help to fund defibrillators at Community Fire Stations
5th November 2015
It is just over five months since a gentleman collapsed at the wheel of his car outside the Old Mill pub in Barton-upon-Humber suffering from a cardiac arrest. Passers-by ran to Barton fire station for help, where fortunately three colleagues from HFR Solutions were having a meeting and had an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to hand.
