Public Access Defibrillators
At present there are 3 defibrillators situated within premises in Bathgate town centre: Bathgate Partnership Centre, Regal Community Theatre and The Albacare Premises.
There is no provision for public access equipment when these premises are closed. Many towns throughout the UK have installed public access defibrillators in locations such as redundant public telephone boxes.
Enterprising Bathgate board members agreed to fund the purchase and installation of two public access defibrillators in the town centre. One is already installed on the exterior wall of the Albacare building next to the Partnership Centre on South Bridge Street. The other unit will be installed as soon as agreement has been reached with the tenant of the other building that has been identified.
