COMMUNITY DEFIBRILLATOR

DefibrillatorThe Parish Council have acquired a Community Defibrillator which has been installed in Bus Shelter.

In the case of an emergency please phone 999 when, in appropriate circumstances, the operator will provide the access number and talk you through its use. Any parishioner who is interested in helping to manage this facility please contact the Clerk.

We recognise that using the defibrillator can be a daunting experience.  We've, therefore, compiled a defibrillator guide to outline it's use.
