The Community Defibrillator was installed at Channels Park in mid December and whilst the equipment is technically ‘live’, it cannot yet be used as we are still waiting for confirmation from the East of England Ambulance Service that they have registered it on their system.
The equipment is being checked on a weekly basis to ensure it is fully operational however it cannot be used until such time that the “AED Not in Service” sign has been removed.
The Defibrillator page on this website has been updated with key information about how a Community Defibrillator is activated and other guidance, including helpful videos.
In advance of wider community awareness training that is being organised, it would be worth becoming familiar with the key information as we could receive notification at any time that the device has been registered meaning it will become fully accessible.
