Largs Fire Station is the latest place to be installed with a new defibrillator following a fundraising drive.

Largs Scottish Fire and Rescue crew are pictured with the First Responders at the official launch ceremony on Monday evening. The lifesaving devices have been popping up around the town thanks to various fundraising drives.

A number of events have taken place including a car wash at Largs Fire Station last year involving the responders and firefighters which included defibrillator demonstrations on the day.

James Bertram of Largs First Responders said: "The defibrillators themselves are very hi-tec, and there is a voice kit which tells you exactly what to do in the event of an emergency so anyone who is not trained in CPR is able to use it. It is a very intelligent piece of kit. Nobody should have any fear about using it."

All defibrillators are signposted in an easy to access mobile phone app called 'GoodSam' - short for Good Samaritans - which provides details for 'defibs' all over the United Kingdom for iPhone and Android users.

James said: "These defibs could be a real life saver, and this mobile phone app is really excellent for using, not just in Largs, but anywhere, as it will show where defibrillators are based near your location. It is a really useful tool."

Defibrillators in Largs are now based at Tesco Express, Co-op, Morrison's Supermarket, The George, and Largs RNLI station, as well as local council buildings.
