Defibrillator Demonstration

Chris Oakes, the Parish Council Chair and local First Responder has set up a defibrillator demonstration session.

The demonstration will take place at The Horse and Groom. The next session will be on THURSDAY evening of the 23rd August), at 7:30pm. If this session fills up, another session could be run. Note: This is a change from the evening initially advertised. As the trainer will be on first aid duty at Norwich football ground, on the Wednesday.

Here is what it might look like

Tunstead and Sco Ruston residents came together and very quickly raised sufficient funds for the purchase of a defibrillator which will be housed in the redundant telephone box opposite the primary school. The telephone box will soon be refurbished and made ready to receive the new machine.

The device is simple to use, and it guides the user on what to do. Any member of the public is entitled to use the machine in the case when someone’s heart stops (cardiac arrest). However, to give you confidence in its use come along to the demonstration session, and see a training system in use. Chat with first aiders about its use. So when you leave the demonstration you will be clear on how and when its use will be the most effective.

It will be helpful if you could let Chris know which session you will be attending. Please call him on 07909835514, or you could simply click the button below to register your interest. No forms to fill in online.
