A heart defribrillator has been installed at the Village Hall.
It is mounted on the end wall of the Hall - facing the road.
The yellow box is clearly visible and the defribrillator is available to use as necessary.
Guidance on how to use the machine are displayed on it.
The machine is safe to use & makes a diagnosis as to whether or not it is necessary to 'shock' a patient.
Note that if a patient is conscious, breathing, talking, the defribrillator is not required. Its purpose is to re-start a heart that has stopped beating. If you are unable to discern a heartbeat then use the machine.
HOWEVER, even if you get it wrong, because the machine makes the diagnosis,
you cannot cause harm to a patient when using it.
THE MACHINE HAS BEEN FUNDED BY
THE RSPCA AND THE PARISH COUNCIL.
THE VILLAGE HALL TRUSTEES AGREED TO IT BEING INSTALLED AT THE HALL.
