Good news! At long last we have been notified that the Community Defibrillator is fully live and registered with the ambulance service. We have a team of volunteers that check the cabinet and equipment on a weekly basis, the majority of which have also received their awareness training.
Is is important to understand how a Community Defibrillator is activated and the core process can be found HERE. The page also contains links to helpful resources and videos.
Our Community Defibrillator is located at the entrance to Channels Park and is visible from the street, the parking area and of course the skate park & play area. The postcode is CM33PY however a more accurate way of pinpointing the location is through the What3Words service. What3Words divides the world into 3 metre squares and gives each square a unique combination of three words. It’s the easiest way to find and share exact locations and is used by the ambulance and other emergency services.
Location (What3Words): yoga.payer.blows
Lastly we are looking to run a further community awareness session (either face to face or via Zoom) in April for residents to attend and further details will be made available in due course.
Thanks to everyone that has contributed to make this project possible 🙂
