Following our team success in passing our recent First Aid Courses, it was decided to purchase a new defibrillator for the village.
The combined administration of CPR and use of a defibrillator is the only effective treatment for a person who has suffered a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). A defibrillator will deliver an electrical shock to stop the irregular rhythm and allow the heart’s natural pacemaker to restart the natural rhythm.
The defibrillator is located at the entrance to the Swimming Pool. We hope we never need to use it but it’s good to know it’s there in case of an emergency!
