Installation of Defibrillator
The Parish Council have installed a defibrillator on the front of the pavilion, situated on the cricket green adjacent to the allotments. This has been jointly funded by the Parish Council, the Buxton Trust and the Scouts.
Defibrillators are an essential tool in helping people who have had a cardiac arrest survive while medical help is on its way. They can be used without prior training by anyone – full audible instructions are issued by the unit itself. There is a video link online which we would suggest all allotment holders watch, showing the steps you would take if you needed to help someone who was in cardiac arrest. The link is below:
Please familiarise yourself with the position of the defibrillator should you ever need to quickly retrieve it. And please do let me know if you have any questions.
