Defibrillators are increasingly being provided in our villages. Find out where they are. Your parish clerks will know the locations.
I recommend watching the short video from St Johns Ambulance on how to use them. Dialling 999 is the first action and will get you the code to unlock the defibrillator.
You don’t need to be trained to use a defibrillator – anyone can use it. They are simple and easy to use and you don’t need any training. There are clear instructions on how to attach the defibrillator pads. It then assesses the heart rhythm and will only instruct you to deliver a shock if it’s needed.
