Life Saving Equipment
The village now owns an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) which could be used to save a life in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest. This can happen to anyone whatever their age including children. The device is located on the Rex Rhodes building and is accessible by dialling 999. Follow the link above to see what action you would need to take if you were to come across someone in the village who had suffered a sudden cardiac arrest. Please note that because the equipment is intelligent and completely automatic it is impossible to hurt anyone by using it but its use may save a life.
