I made a promise

On the 7th October 2004 , I made a promise that following the death of
Mike 'Spike' Williamson he would be remembered and some good would come out of this sad event.

Spike passed away following a heart attack and that promise was to provide a defibrillator for the town.

We did manage to provide two devices for the town back in 2012 however by working with some like minded people that promise really became true yesterday when the new heated cabinet went live.

Having a heated cabinet ensures the safe operation for the device kept inside.

Yesterday South Western Ambulance confirmed the cabinet had been registered and went live.

The device and cabinet have been provided by private donations to a community partnership , the Coastguard building is ideally located in North Swanage to have this device.

The partnership would like to thank the Maritime and Coastguard Agency for their support in allowing this cabinet to be located at this location.

The cabinet is dedicated to Mike ' Spike ' Williamson

It's important to note that in a Medical emergency , a 999 call to the ambulance service is required to get the release code to the cabinet and get an ambulance on route.
