Defibrillators

The parish council has installed defibrillators at the following locations:

  • Inside Spar shop Zebon Copse
  • Outside Zebon Community Centre
  • Outside Crookham Village Social Club

Check instructions on the outside of the cabinet, which may include making an emergency telephone call to get an entry code.

These defibrillators are designed for use by people without any prior training and will only activate on a patient if the unit detects heart rhythms that justify defibrillation.

To see a defibrillator in action for real at Bondi Beach, watch this movie, another from Yorkshire and this one from UK TV.

If you ever see any damage to any of these units, please inform the CVPC clerk immediately.
