Cuckoo Meadow Defibrillator

by | Oct 16, 2022 | Village Trust

Trustees are pleased to advise that the Cuckoo Meadow defibrillator is now operational and registered with emergency services. Although Trustees hope this is a precautionary measure only, using a defibrillator can significantly increase the chances of survival.

Anyone can use a defibrillator without training. Once turned on, it will provide clear instructions on how to attach the defibrillator pads. The device checks the heart rhythm and will only tell you to shock if needed. You cannot shock someone accidentally.

If required dial 999 and inform the operator of the postcode location which is written on front of the unit. The operator will issue the access code to the defibrillator.

Once in use the operator will stay with you on the telephone and despatch emergency services if needed.

Trustees hope to set up some CPR training in the future, though in the meantime this short British Heart Foundation information video will tell you everything you need to know.

If used the Trust will need to be informed immediately as some components will need replacing.

Trustees would like to thank NATS Holdings, formerly National Air Traffic Services for their kind donation of £500 in support of the purchase of the defibrillator.

As always please do not hesitate to contact the Trust please email info@northwaltham.org if you have any questions regarding this or any other matters relating to North Waltham Village Trust.
