Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) It is with grateful thanks to Brampton League of Friends that the parish council can announce that two more AED’s and external cabinets have been purchased. The purchases have been fully funded by the Brampton League of Friends.
The parish council has also taken over responsibility for the AED at Heads Nook, which has been operational for some time.
All the AED’s have now 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 Brackengill, Hardbank
5. On the wall of the Village Hall, Heads Nook
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.
