Village Defibrillator
The defibrillator, provided as the result of a magnificent initiative started by the regulars of the White Horse, is located opposite the bus shelter. Our thanks also to Mr Chris Legge whose nearby property provides the electrics required to heat the cabinet. Most importantly, if you have cause to phone 999 for the Ambulance Service, they will know the village has a defibrillator and if the circumstances are appropriate they will give you the access code and tell you to fetch it. The defibrillator (yes really!) will then talk you through what to do while you wait for the ambulance but what you will have done is provided that most crucial element whenever life is threatened by a medical emergency – FIRST AID. A series of Videos showing how the defibrillator operates and when it should be used can be viewed by selecting one of the headings below. They will also be shown at film nights in the Community Hall, the Village Assembly and other village events.
Note: The defibrillator deals with cardiac arrest, i.e. when the heart stops, and will only operate in those circumstances. Your call to 999 will be your key to its use. You will not be expected to make that decision. Lastly – it is hoped you never have reason to use it. More questions? Call John Firrell - 482313
