The Emergency Services Response Vehicle was set up in the parking area at the Community Garden and crew attended along with the First Responders and Police.
There was a very wet Bouncy Castle located beside Curves and the First Responders had their gazebo there and were distributing free hot dogs and other goodies. They also demonstrated how a defibrillator works.
Anyone requiring to use the machine, first of all requires to telephone the number indicated on the weatherproof housing (which is locked) in order to gain access to the machine.
The First Responders not only help to save lives, but are very much involved in various local community events in the area.
A permanent operating base has been a priority for them and finally, after being in various locations in Beith, they are now based in Kilbirnie.
There are various First Aid Courses available where you can learn basic first aid, and also how to use a defibrillator.
