In June I was approached by one of our local councillors asking if he could fund a community accessible defibrillator outside High Cross Church. Having spoken to a few people and checked locations, we agreed it would be a great project and the ideal location would be outside the café doors so it was accessible to those attending the theatre.
The way it works, is if someone dials 999, and a defibrillator would help, the ambulance service direct the caller to the cabinet, and give them the access code. Then the AED is used as instructed. These publicly accessible defibrillators are easy to use, and the operators talks a caller through the process.
As you can see it has been fitted, and is now accessible 24/7. Thanks to Allan for fitting the cabinet, and to Cllrs Richard Brooks, Dan Adams, and Charlotte Morley for funding the equipment.
Like the one in the concourse, lets pray it is never needed.
