A defibrillator has been installed on the corner of Ridge Rd and Charles St on the noticeboard.
In the event of a heart failure, call 111 to obtain a key code to retrieve the unit.
The defibrillator issues spoken commands to the person performing first aid on someone and will not administer a shock to anyone where the condition is not warranted.
A training and planning class will be held each year to allow people to prepare for what to do in the event that a defibrillator may be required. In 2019, the dates and times for the classes are:-
Sunday March 10th 10am
Wednesday March 20th 10am
There is no need to book – assemble on the corner of Ridge Rd and Charles Street.
