Defibrillator Access

On Behalf of the Parish Council Colin Hall has asked for the following message to be posted as information:

Following the PC meeting last night it was agreed that the access code to the defibrillator cabinet be made available to residents if they feel that it would be beneficial.

To ensure that security of the equipment is not compromised it was thought prudent not to openly publish the code number but to ask residents to contact Colin Hall who will be happy to provide that information.

Of course when ringing the emergency services that number is immediately given but after the First Responder presentation several residents indicated that having that code to hand would useful.

Village Defibrillator

Yesterday evenings defibrillator training event was a great success and extremely well attended, 35 people came!

It took the form of a workshop and involved all those present

First responders for area explained various techniques associated with the Defibrilator and its use.

Residents were able to question and be assured of the efficacy of the device.

Access to the equipment fully explained and any fears about using it allayed

David Reed, First Responder Coordinator for Whittington area, gave a Humorous presentation. (As he did at a Parish Council Meeting last year, which assisted the PC in coming to the decision to acquire the device).

There are vacancies for First Responders in our area. Anyone interested to get in touch with me

Very best regards

Colin Hall
Chairman Whittington Parish Council
