Your Safety

The following sections contain information useful in the event of emergency or if you require assistance.

The Defibrillator is managed by the Parish Council in partnership with South West Ambulance Service NHS Trust. It is on the front wall of The Davis Hall on Howell Hill. Location Map

If you come across a patient in difficulty, call 999 and describe the symptoms to the Ambulance Service - they may tell you to fetch the defibrillator from the cabinet - IT IS UNLOCKED - JUST OPEN THE DOOR, GRAB THE PACK AND RETURN TO YOUR PATIENT.

Open the Pack and lift the lid - listen to the voice that will tell you what to do, and stay on the phone to the Ambulance Service too - they will guide you.

After you have used the defibrillator, tell us so we can service the equipment.

Funding was generously provided by The Davis Hall user groups and The British Heart Foundation who supplied the device.
