Defibrillators

There is a defibrillator at the end of the Parking Bay opposite the Trout Farm.

A defibrillator is about to be installed externally at Bibury Football Club (late February 2019).

TELEPHONE '999', if needed for the code.

Defibrillators are very easy to use. Although they don't all look the same, they all function in broadly the same way.

You don't need training to use one. The machine gives clear spoken instructions – all you have to do is follow them - and it won't shock someone unless they need it.

If you come across someone who is unconscious, unresponsive, not breathing or not breathing normally, they're in cardiac arrest. The most important thing is to call 999 and start CPR to keep the blood flowing to the brain and around the body. After a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces someone's chance of survival by 10 per cent.

If you're on your own, don't interrupt the CPR to go and get a defibrillator.
