First Dudley taxi to have live saving defibrillator fitted

A Wall Heath taxi driver has become the first in the borough to carry a defibrillator in their taxi.

ACE Taxis' Phil Salt will now carry around the life-saving equipment in his cab in case of a medical emergency, after owner Phil Salt got in touch with cardiac arrest charity AEDdonate.

The charity, which provided funding for the kit, works to improve survival rates of cardiac arrests and provide defibrillators to communities. The chances of survival after a cardiac arrest can increase from 6% to 74% if a defibrillator and CPR are used within the first three to five minutes of collapse.
