Village Defibrillator



January 2021

The village has a defibrillator located in the Community Rooms at the end of Silverley Way.

There is no requirement for any training to effectively use the defibrillator, It has simple instructions and voice prompts to tell you what to do at each step. Defibrillators can be a life saving device for someone suffering heart attack, but need to be administered within minutes of the onset of an attack. It is best that you familiarise yourself to the location just in case it is ever needed in an emergency.

The image shows the building where the equipment is located. It is in the entrance foyer. The post code  of the location is CB8 9DY and it has a 'What Three Words' address of 'winks.majoring.trees'. 

The defibrillator was made possible by funds very kindly donated by Sanctuary Housing.
