Defibrillator

Defibrillator

Sunningdale Parish Council is pleased to be funding and installing a second defibrillator in the village which will be located outside ‘Lewis of Sunningdale’ Butchers on Chobham Road within the next 4 – 6 weeks. Thanks to the residents who requested this and worked with the council to ensure it happened.  The existing defibrillator is located inside the disabled toilet at Broomhall Park.

A defibrillator is an essential first aid facility that may save lives. Speed is critical in responding to a sudden cardiac arrest. In minutes spent calling and waiting for an ambulance, using a defibrillator can make a big difference in the outcome.

4 steps to take if someone is having a cardiac arrest

Cardiac arrests can happen to anyone, at any time. The following steps give someone the best chance of survival. If you come across someone in cardiac arrest:

  1. Call 999
  2. Start CPR
  3. If possible, ask someone to bring a defibrillator if there’s one nearby
  4. Turn on the defibrillator and follow its instructions.
