Stoke Albany Defibrillator


The Defibrillator can be used in an emergency when you suspect that someone may be having a cardiac arrest. It's really simple to use. Please take a few moments to familiarise yourself with its location, means of access, and operation. You could save the life of someone close to you.


Location

The Defibrillator is housed in the old phone kiosk on the top green, beside the Parish Council Notice board.

Operation

The equipment is in the form of a small portable carry-case, containing an intelligent charger unit and some sticky pads that need to be attached to the patient.
