Use of the Parish Defibrillator

The parish defibrillator is located in the centre of the village by Sedley’s School. Below are some basic instructions of what to do if someone stops breathing.

Step 1 – check if the person (casualty) is breathing

Step 2 – call out for someone to help you and get them to call 999 – they should say if  the person is breathing or not. Meanwhile you start CPR

Step 3  – if there is no-one to help, call 999 yourself – using the microphone on your phone (ie hands free) as the operator can talk you through what to do to start CPR

Step 4the 999 operator will tell you the location of the nearest defibrillator at Sedley’s School and the access code.
