The number of Public Access Defibrillators (PADS) in Donside is being expanded.

The Donside Defibrillator Group is raising awareness of their role in cardiac arrest, the need to install them and provide CPR training.

PADS have been installed in Monymusk and at Tullynessle and Forbes Hall. Others are planned for Alford, Bellabeg Glenkindie, Kemnay and other small communities.

The first session of CPR training is in Tullynessle and Forbes Hall on the evening of April 27.

The Donside Defibrillator Group offers help and advice on fundraising.
