The Council has installed three public access defibrillators: the Scout Hall in School Road, the Pavilion at the Recreation Field and at Redhill Village Hall. All these defibrillators are on external walls and are available for use at any time by residents or medical professionals. In an emergency you should always call 999 and the Ambulance Service will assess the circumstances and, if they feel that it would be right to use the defibrillator, give the cabinet access code and provide guidance on how to treat the patient.
The defibrillator at the Scout Hall was donated to the Council by David James & Partners, for which we are very grateful. We were very pleased that the Scout & Guide Group agreed that this defibrillator could be located at the Scout Hall and they monitor its use and condition. This is a HeartSafee defibrillator.
The other defibrillators are Cardiac Science G3 units and were supplied by the South West Ambulance Service, with the Council providing secure cabinets from the Community Heartbeat Trust (CHT), with donation support.
Please let us know if you need more information and, especially, if you hear of anyone having used the defibrillators.
