Sulzer Pumps donates AED device for Min Ryan Park

In a perfect collaboration between the business and voluntary sectors, a new defibrillator is set to be installed at the Min Ryan Park. The AED device was donated by nearby Sulzer Pumps who wanted to give a little back to the local community. They reached out to independent councillor Leonard Kelly, who set the wheels in motion for the potentially life-saving equipment to be installed at the park.


The Wexford unit of Order of Malta has also committed to maintaining and carrying out all necessary routine checks on the equipment, to ensure that it’s ready in the event of an emergency.


‘I was happy to be able to bring together business and community for what could potentially be a life-saving enterprise,’ said Cllr Kelly. ‘I was approached by Sulzer, who wished to donate this piece of equipment. The borough was more than happy to accept and I thought that the Min Ryan Park was the ideal location for it.


‘The Order of Malta have graciously come on board as custodians and it’s just a really nice community effort. The AED will be installed somewhere near the toilet block and will be visible, with clear signage. Hopefully it will never be needed, but it will be there waiting in the event of an emergency.’


Mayor of Wexford Garry Laffan was also delighted to be there for the handover of the AED and thanked management at Sulzer on behalf of the people of Wexford.
