Emergencies: Parish Defibrillator Information

Following the Defibrillator Awareness Evening which was very much appreciated I have been asked to give some further information for those who were unable to attend.

There are 4 Defibrillators in the Benefice – Locations are:

  • By the mail box at the Post Office in Pensford
  • In the telephone kiosk in Hillcrest
  • In the telephone kiosk in Woollard
  • In the telephone kiosk in Compton Dando

In the case of a collapsed person – possible cardiac arrest – call for help from somebody around. Ring 999 and ask for an ambulance – person collapsed and not responding.

State where you are.  You will be given instructions to get the defibrillator and what to do. STAY ON THE PHONE. Once you have phoned 999 then an ambulance or Paramedic will be on their way to you.

The Parish Council will organise refresher sessions from time to time.
