New Defibrillator for Owls Green

15 March 2019

A new NHS defibrillator has been installed at Owls Green and can be used in an emergency. It is located in the old telephone box at Wells Corner on B1116.  

Its intended use is for any person who dials 999 and requires life saving assistance. 

Once in contact with the ambulance emergency service, the call centre will take details, if they think,  by using the defibrillator it would save a life they would then give you the access code to the box where the defibrillator is housed followed by further instructions on how to operate it. 

The defibrillator is fully automatic. It also has a switchable young person mode to allow it to be used on children from one year to eight year olds as well as the standard adult mode. 

The defibrillator is so simple to use. Once the green button is pressed, it activates a voice which can be heard giving stage by stage instructions and prompts along with where the pads are to be placed on the casualty.

The Parish Council would like to thank County Councillor Stephen Burroughes for providing funds from his Locality Budget to enable the purchase of this vital piece of equipment. His continued support for the village is much appreciated.
