When Dave Snow had a heart attack last year, it was a wake-up call for his workmates at Gillies Metaltech that they weren’t getting any younger either.
After a fundraising effort by staff, a defibrillator has been bought for the Gillies site, and will be available for anyone in Oamaru’s Victorian Precinct in case of emergency.
Gillies employ 35 staff, and on Friday two people from each department were trained how to use the defibrillator by registered nurse Kay Dennison.
Funding for the device came from a collaboration led by Mr Snow, when he returned from work after suffering from a heart attack last year.
