Defibrillators and Emergency Equipment
Defibrillators are vital when someone is suffering a cardiac crisis and can often significantly improve a persons chance of recovery. There is a defibrillator located outside the Village Hall which is accessible all the time. They are very easy to use and come with simple to follow instructions. The videos below shows what you need to do in the event of someone falling ill with a heart attack or other cardiac event. Please contact the Parish Council if you use the defibrillator so that it can be prepared for the next use.
