A defibrillator kit to treat suspected heart attack victims has been installed at Suffolk FA headquarters in Stowmarket.
The equipment has been fixed to the front of the Suffolk FA offices at The Buntings in Kestrel Drive at Cedars Park.
At least one life has been saved thanks to a defibrillator at a Suffolk football club.
A supporter in his 60s collapsed after falling ill just before the local derby between Haverhill Rovers and Haverhill Borough in September 2017.
Defibrillators deliver an electrical charge across the heart to stop it, allowing it to reconfigure automatically.
