West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service has teamed up with SECAmb to have the life-saving equipment installed at all its stations, including the Worthing station opposite Broadwater Green.

Roy Barraclough, Worthing’s station commander, said: “The provision of this equipment at key sites around the county including fire stations helps us make the area a safer place to live, work and visit.

“All staff at Worthing Fire Station have been trained in the use of defibrillators which are carried on all fire engines but there are times when our crews may be out on a call and someone comes to the station looking for assistance.”
