Whitchurch Rural Parish has two defibrillators. They are located at Ash Village Hall in Ash Magna and at the Tilstock Bradbury Village Hall in Tilstock.
The Parish Council and the Village Hall Committees manage the defibrillators (undertaking regular checks on the units) and in line with best practice they are registered on The Circuit (www.thecircuit.uk) which is the national defibrillator database. This database is used by the emergency services and it ensures that the codes are available to them in an emergency. The cabinets are locked. In an emergency dial 999 for assistance giving the location for reference. You will be given a code to unlock the device and the emergency services will assist you.
Operating a defibrillator is straightforward. Once the on/off button is pressed, the unit will give instructions to the operator, detailing how to apply the two chest pads and giving personal safety instructions to the user. Visual illustrations are displayed on the defibrillator itself and the cabinet.
