Automatic Electronic Defibrillator at The Bell Inn
Posted 40 weeks ago (08/02) by Theresa Goss
Thanks to generous donations from customers, Hook Norton Brewery and several local clubs and organisations, we now have a defibrillator installed on the front wall of The Bell.
It is sited under the street light in an illuminated cabinet next to Adderbury Stores. It is available 24 hours a day and anybody requiring access to the unit should phone 999 and they will be given the exact location, the code to unlock the cabinet and instructions on caring for the patient.
It is an intelligent unit and, although we hope it is never used, it will not allow a shock to be administered unless it detects a requirement.
The Ambulance Service has kindly offered to run training courses to ensure that residents would feel comfortable, if the need arose, to operate the defibrillator.
There will be two courses at The Bell on Thursday 7th March 2019. The first will run from 2:30 to 4:30 and the second from 6:30 to 8:30.
They are free to attend and tea and coffee will be provided.
If you wish to attend a course, please phone The Bell on 01295 810338 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
Once again, many thanks for all the donations that made this possible.
