Lucky2BHere Defibrillator & Dogs Against Drugs
April 21st 2021

An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Has Been Installed at the DH Marine Offices Next to the Lerwick Marina

David Henry (MD DH Marine) and Ronnie Gair (LPA Chairman)

The Lerwick Port Authority and DH Marine each contributed £500 to the Lucky2BHere charity.

Defibrillators are portable electronic devices that automatically diagnose and treat life threatening cardiac arrhythmias that cause cardiac arrest.

This is a public access defibrillator can be used by anyone, even if they haven't been trained- the defibrillator tells you what to do as soon as you open the box.

If you want to find out how to use one, see this short Scottish Ambulance Service video.

It's location at the Marina Business Park in Lerwick will help increase the availability of this time critical life saving equipment in the area, which includes local businesses, the Lerwick Marina and the nearby college.

Thanks must go to Lizzy and Kaylee who volunteered to carry out the training.

Training Support for Two New Dog Handlers

DH Marine has donated £2,000 to the Shetland charity, Dogs Against Drugs.

The well known and effective community led project has recruited two new handlers- Megan and Hannah.

The much needed money will go towards their initial training, equipment and PPE.

In addition to their drugs detection role the team visit schools to help educate tomorrow's generation on the realities of illegal drugs.

Drugs dog Oscar is a relatively new recruit too- the photo shoot was combined with a spot of training, both outside and inside the premises, which he clearly enjoyed!
