Defibrillator and Emergency Procedures

DEFIBRILLATOR

Following staff training, an Automated External Defibrillator has now been sited in the main foyer next to the Office.
This must only be used in the unfortunate instance of someone requiring resuscitation and should only be removed in the case of such an emergency.
Please note this is not a toy and should not be tampered with.
Although staff have had specific training, anyone who has a knowledge of carrying out CPR would be able to use this piece of equipment as it talks you through the whole procedure.
