AED – Automatic external defibrillator
The defibrillator located outside the Community Centre was collected recently to deal with a medical emergency. In the machine was not required and was later returned to its cabinet.
Would you know how to use the machine? Do you know how it works?
Even with very basic first aid knowledge you could successfully save somebody’s life. The machine talks you through each step. Why not have a look at one of the many online videos by searching ‘how do I use a defibrillator UK’ or similar wording, you will then at least be aware of what to expect from the defibrillator.
If you do have to use the machine please make certain the Community Council is informed. The machine can then be checked, new pads provided etc so that everything is available for any future emergency.
