It is designed to be used by anyone in the event of a person suffering a cardiac arrest. Once you switch it on, it will give you clear instructions on what to do and it WON’T work if the casualty’s heart is beating so you can’t hurt someone.
We have had one training session for people living in the village and some regular hall users. If there is enough demand, we would like to arrange a further session after lambing has finished. The training lasts 2 hours and gives you a chance to learn how to do CPR and to try out using a defibrillator. If you would like to come along to the training, please let me know.
NB ANYONE CAN USE THE DEFIBRILLATOR WITHOUT TRAINING
Our thanks go to the village resident who has kindly volunteered to check the defibrillator and box regularly.
