Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s)


There is a rolling programme (funded by the Parish Council) to replace AED batteries and pads to ensure they are fully up-to-date.  This year both Fenton and How Mill have been replaced.


Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s)

All the AED’s have been registered with the Ambulance Service and are fully operational.

The locations are:

1. On the wall of the village hall at Talkin

2. On a pole at the Walnut Field, Hayton

3. On the wall of Steve Wilson, Butchers shop, Corby Hill

4. On the wall at Brackensgill, Hardbank

5. On the wall of the Village Hall, Heads Nook

6. On the wall at the String of Horses Inn, Faugh

7. On the wall next to noticeboard, Fenton

8. On the outside house wall of Woody Glen, How Mill

The cabinets are locked and you will need to telephone the emergency 999 number and speak to an operator who will give the code to access the cabinet. The AED can be used without Heartstart training as the machine gives automated instructions.
