The Parish Council has purchased two defibrillators for use in the community. They are installed on the front outside wall of the Memorial Hall fronting Main Street, Seamer and on the outside side wall of ‘Woodstock’, Shop 1, Curlew Drive, Crossgates.
The procedure for access to a defibrillator is as follows:
- A call is made to 999
- When the Ambulance Service receives a 999 call the system automatically scans for the nearest defibrillator. The public access defibrillators will normally only show if the incident is within 600m of the cabinet.
- If the incident potentially may need a defibrillator then the operator will ask if anyone is available to go and get the defibrillator and bring it back to the patient (They will be given the access code). They won't do this if it means leaving the patient alone or it delays CPR.
Once the defibrillator is with the patient the operator will give instructions on how to use the device.
The attachment below give a quick reference guide to the equipment which you can view and/or print for any future use.
