THE HEART OF STONEYBATTER – PAINT-A-BOX STREET ART PLUS A REPURPOSED PHONE KIOSK
This is a great idea.
The phone kiosk houses the defibrillator which can deliver a life-saving electric shock to a victim of cardiac arrest. The installation is located on Aughrim street at Stoneybatter Green and is the first in Dublin to be established by the Heart of Ireland project.
When you approach the defibrillator box, you’re asked to dial 999. Once you dial 999 you’ll be put through to the ambulance service. The ambulance service will give you the PIN number over the phone and they’ll dispatch a paramedic to the scene as well. If you need assistance working the defibrillator, that will be given over the phone until you’re joined by the paramedic.”
