Video on how to use Defibrillator and apply CPR

The village defibrillator is located on the outside wall of the Community Centre on Victoria Street.

The most important thing to remember to to call for help and ring 999

Do you need training to use one? 

No, as defibrillators give clear, verbal instructions on how to use the device. There are images on the packets for the chest pads that show you where to place them, which doesn’t have to be exact. Being untrained in using a defibrillator shouldn’t be a barrier to using one. Lives have been saved by untrained people giving defibrillator shocks to people in cardiac arrest.

The Video below is useful to watch if you wish to familiarise yourself in how to use a defibrillator. There is also a video on how to apply CPR below.
