Stations are often at the heart of communities and never more so than on the Heart of Wales line which celebrates its 150th anniversary this year. Much of the line runs through rural communities in Carmarthenshire, Powys and Shropshire
Every second counts when someone is having a cardiac arrest. Survival rates are extremely poor at only 3% but when a Defibrillator is used, rates can increase to up to 50% so timely intervention is essential.
Transport Wales (formerly Arriva Trains Wales) are partnering with the charity Welsh Hearts to deliver a Public Access Defibrillator at all 28 stations on the Heart of Wales line. We will be "Looking after the Heart of Wales". These defibrillators will be for everyone and really could help save a life.
