A life-saving defibrillator has been installed at a Moray visitor centre thanks to a donation from a local wind farm operator.
The machine will be installed at the Logie Steading visitor centre, at Dunphail, near Forres, by Defibs for Moray.
The organisation was set up by dentist Ken Glass, who was brought back to life after his heart stopped beating for 20 minutes when he suffered a cardiac arrest in 2017.
Mr Glass was on his way to hospital in Elgin after suffering a concussion while playing football when his heart stopped. Ambulance staff revived him with the help of a defibrillator.
Mr Glass subsequently began raising funds for public defibrillators and there are now more than 20 across Moray.
Now money for a new defibrillator has been donated by wind farm operator Statkraft in response to wildfires that swept across moorland south of Forres, and through the company’s Berry Burn Wind Farm, last year.
Statkraft has provided £2,750 to fund installing the equipment and maintenance for five years, as well as training staff.
Mr Glass said: “This donation from Statkraft is extremely generous and very welcome. Crucially, it will also allow us to train people in its use.
“One of the most important parts of installing a defibrillator is raising public awareness on how to use them.”
Dennis Geyermann, vice-president of UK Operations at Statkraft, said: “The wildfires were devastating for parts of Moray, including the Berry Burn Wind Farm, but they highlighted the bravery of our emergency services and local volunteers who worked so tirelessly in response.
“We wanted to thank those involved, but also do something positive in return.”
