New Defibrillator

Good News for the Village, we have now installed a heart defibrillator at the front of the building which is available to use in an emergency thanks to the  brilliant Fundraising efforts of Nigel Waterman and the Nether Stowey Football club (half funded by the FA), the electric skills of Glen Manchip and his team and the ongoing support and maintenance from the Quantock Medical Centre.

The Defibrillator is wired up to maintain the battery and is alarmed.  It is held in a specific casing which has no code but does need a bit of a tug to open it, (the alarm will go off when opened).  This Defib has been registered with the Emergency Services. The Defib is easy to use and has spoken instructions and the emergency services will talk anyone through the procedure.

The Medical Centre will be putting on it’s Annual free Resuscitation Training in February/March 2019 so look out for dates in the New Year.
