Defibrillator Awareness Sessions
In current uncertain circumstances, we have pencilled in a follow-up CPR (Call Push Rescue) refresher session at the earliest for March 2022. More realistically we are looking at October 2022.
In the meantime, the British Heart Foundation website provides excellent video reminders of the processes, including use of the defibrillator.
Also be reassured - the defibrillator "instructs" in its own use. Listen to the instructions and you would know what to do.
You can see the bright yellow defibrillator cabinet on the west-facing wall of the Whitestonecliffe Inn.
We have published the cabinet security code in newsletters to parishioners' homes. If you'd like to be reminded, please contact a councillor or the Clerk.
We have found from a particular experience of summoning an ambulance for a neighbour, the telephone operator suggested that we collect the defibrillator, to be in place for the paramedics. It was not possible to leave the patient. It was reassuring to be able to ring a contact in the village who already knew the code.
To know the code routinely might make a difference.
