A FLINTSHIRE pub has proudly been presented with a community defibrillator by the mayor.

The Red Lion, Mold, received a community defibrillator on Tuesday, December 19, gifted to the business by the local council.

Mayor of Mold Cllr Teresa Carberry was delighted to present it to managers Tracey McNichol and Vicki Ellis.

Tracey said: "We at the Red Lion feel it is of the upmost importance for this apparatus to be available to the public and our customers.

"We deal and care for a wide variety of the public both young and old, with varied medical needs. This is something both the Red Lion and our sister pub the Black Lion in Buckley feels should be available in every public house."

Cllr Carberry said: "Delighted to meet with Tracy McNichol and Vicki Ellis, the new managers of The Red Lion, to be able to present a defibrillator, on behalf of Mold Town Council.


"Mold can be proud that it now has several defibrillators within key, accessible locations in the town. As with all the other defibrillators, it will be registered on The Circuit, which is the UK’s National Defibrillator Network and it maps defibrillators across the UK and connects them directly and automatically to Ambulance Services. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌‌‌​‍‌​​​‌​‌‌‍‌​​​‌‌​‌‍‌​​‌‌‌‌​‍‌​​‌‌‌​​‍‌​​‌​‌​​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​​‌‌​‌​‍‌​​‌‌‌​​‍‌‌​​‌‌​‌‍‌‌​​‌‌​​

"When calling 999 the emergency responders use The Circuit to inform the caller where the nearest, in use, defibrillator is located, and if necessary they will provide you with an access code to open up to retrieve a defibrillator that is located inside a cabinet."

The Red Lion is situated on Wrexham Road, Mold, for anyone in the community who needs to reach medical support.
