I often criticise Sicily when things go wrong so it is only fair to congratulate the island's administrators publicly when they come up with an excellent project.

By the end of the year, 310 defibrillators are to be installed in public places in Sicily and careful thought has been given to the eventual locations: Schools, universities, rural pharmacies, small prisons, public transport vehicles, archaeological sites, theatres and railway stations are among the locations selected and training courses in the use of the defibrillators have already begun. It seems that all the Sicilian provinces are included in the programme and the smaller Sicilian islands have not been forgotten.

The Ragusa Health Authority is responsible for developping a software programme to support the project.

Well done, Sicily!

Excellent scheme, I the UK would pay more attention to the importance of installing defibrillators in more public places. There are a few around but not half enough.
Hope you and Simi are well Pat,

Hi, Trubes. I'm surprised that there are so few in public places in the UK. We're fine, thanks. Love to all of you and waggiewoofs xx

A friend of mine had an attack but thankfully was in the swimming pool where they had one. It was remarkable to think that if he'd been a few hundred yards away - in the hospital - they wouldn't have had one to hand!
