For those unaware, there are TWO defibrillators in the village.
1. One is located at the entrance to the village hall. To gain access, you must call the number on the panel and identify the location. You will then be given an access code.
2. The second is located in the old phone box opposite the new development on the site of the Old Rose & Crown.
Defibrillators can be very effective in saving lives, but quick access and having the knowledge to know how to use the equipment safely is critical. Modern defibrillators have a voice guide which takes you through the process step-by-step, and they will not shock people unless their heart is in need of it. The main thing is not to touch the casualty at the time of shock!
Training is made available from time to time.
