Defibrillator Message to All New Residents and Reminder for Others
There is a Defibrillator owned by the village in the Red Telephone Box at the Wereham pond. This is managed and checked by the Parish Council. You don’t need training on how to use it as it has a screen that offers step by step instructions. The only occasion any person who finds themselves seeking this equipment would be following a 999 call and not before. The device is registered with the ambulance service and therefore upon anyone calling 999 they will advise that person to collect it. The ambulance service would provide the code that is required to access the defibrillator. However the Parish Council did purchase some key fobs and fridge magnets with the cabinet code on should anyone like one, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be posted through your letterbox. Obviously keep this very safe as it is good to have this information close to hand, but we would prefer emergency access only to the cabinet. There is also an emergency telephone in the red telephone box that is paid for by the Parish should the device be required it will enable assistance, you would simply push a button. Should you wish to register interest for an awareness session in 2021 for its use please email email@example.com.
