News  »  Village access to defibrillator

   Village access to defibrillator     13 October, 2016

The Parish Council was approached a couple of years ago about the possibility of purchasing a defibrillator for emergency access in the village.  At the time the costs (over £1200) made this impossible but since then it has been exploring other options open to it. The council believes that having an accessible defibrillator which could save a life was important.

We were delighted to hear of a grant fund set up by the British Heart Foundation for groups to purchase a machine for the cost of £400 provided it was accessible and volunteers who could be trained in CPR were found.  Ingleton Parish Council applied to the fund and has been successful.

We are now looking for up to 10 (TEN) volunteers to learn CPR - each volunteers will recieve their own 'annie' doll and associated equipment plus a DVD giving the guidance needed. Anyone interested please contact the council.
