I hope to put people’s minds at rest regarding the village defibrillator, as there has been some confusion with residents.
The defibrillator WILL word at any range away from the box. However, in the unfortunate event of needing the defibrillator , if a phone call is made outside 400m from the phone box to the ambulance call centre the ambulance service are unable to locate the defib on their system. They can not, therefore , provide the code to open the defib cabinet.
Due to this complication, we will be putting the security number to access the defibrillator cabinet inside the phone box.
If you have any concerns , please come and see me in the Post Office.
