View of defibrillator to the right of the main door.

There is a Defibrillator in a yellow lockable cabinet installed on the outside wall of Village Hall, between the Hall's Main Door and the Village Shop Post Office entrance. The Hall defibrillator was provided by the Parish Council in partnership with Hanna's Field Charity. The operational status of the device is regularly monitored to ensure it is ready for use in an emergency. 

Defibrillators can lower the risk of sudden death among people who have developed a life-threatening heart arrhythmia from causes such as genetic diseases, heart failure, or a prior cardiac arrest. A defibrillator helps counteract heart Ventricular fibrillation and other potentially life-threatening arrhythmias by providing a controlled electrical impulse that’s designed to return the heart to a normal rhythm before it stops beating completely.

The Village Hall's Defibrillator been registered with NHS and is ready for use. It is battery operated and when it is switched on will tell the person how to use the device - just follow the verbal instructions given by the Defibrillator.

The Defibrillator and its location is registered with the Ambulance Service. To open the Defibrillator cabinet and access it  you must first call 999 and ask for Ambulance Service to get the cabinet door code. The ambulance operator will ask if it’s an emergency. If from the patient's symptoms, the ambulance operator thinks the person may need heart defibrillation they will then provide the code to open cabinet to remove the Defibrillator. 

The Defibrillator has a battery. The battery will power the Defibrillator as soon as it is switched on and will tell the person operating it exactly what to do - just follow the verbal instructions. The Defibrillator cabinet is connected to the main electricity supply so that it can be kept at a constant temperature and humidity.

The Defibrillator is an expensive medical item and in the event that it is removed for an emergency it must be returned to Hanna's Field Charity afterwards for checks and return to its  cabinet outside the Hall.
