DEFIBRILLATOR

Due to the hard work of the Edgmond Rural Community Initiative and supporting organisations and individuals, Edgmond village hall will be fitted with a defibrillator in January.
The defibrillator will be mounted externally for use in an emergency. 
A telephone activation service will enable individuals to access the defibrillator safely in an emergency.

TRAINING
We need as many people as possible to receive training and all are eligible to volunteer so please put your name forward.

Defibrillator Training will take place on Sunday 18th January 9am-1pm

THANKS
The defibrillator and training is being supplied free of charge by West Midlands NHS Ambulance Trust.
The cost of the installation and weather proof enclosure  has been donated in the main by individuals and also by Henshalls and Temperton & Temperton.
The location and underwriting of  future running costs is currently from the village hall management committee. 
The parish Council are in the process of considering whether future costs might be within their gift but no commitment has been received as yet.
