You may have noticed that the defibrillator has been installed at the village hall. Everything is in place and the form filling done to tell the ambulance service that it is ready to use. We are now waiting to hear that they have registered this information. Please watch here for updates.
If someone is unconscious and not breathing the first action is to call the ambulance service on 999 and start CPR straight away. The ambulance service will give you the combination to open the defibrillator cabinet and clearly it's best if someone else does this. The defibrillator can be used without training - it gives voice instructions - and the ambulance service will stay on the phone to help you.
We hope to arrange community awareness sessions to create confidence, learn CPR and to understand the processes.
