- About The BID
As part of our Safe and Welcoming objective, one of our aims is to ensure the town has plenty defibrillators available for public access if needed.
Here is a map of defibrillators in the town centre BID area that we are aware of.
We are delighted to announce that we have added 2 more 24 hour access defibrillators to the town centre (Carers with Care & The Bear).
If you would like to search for defibrillators in your area please use this defib finder site – https://www.defibfinder.uk/
If you are a business and know of one that is not recorded here, please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can update our records…
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. If it’s possible, send someone else to find one.
When you call 999, the operator can tell you if there’s a public access defibrillator nearby. You may need to get an access code from the 999 operator.
The defibrillator will then tell you when you need to do, if any issues occur you can follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Turn the defibrillator on by pressing the green button and follow its instructions.
Step 2: Peel off the sticky pads and attach them to the patient’s skin, one on each side of the chest, as shown in the picture on the defibrillator.
Step 3: Once the pads have been attached, stop CPR and don’t touch the patient. The defibrillator will then analyse the patient’s heart rhythm.
Step 4: The defibrillator will assess whether a shock is needed and if so, it will tell you to press the shock button. An automatic defibrillator will shock the patient without prompt. Do not touch the patient while they are being shocked.
Step 5: The defibrillator will tell you when the shock has been delivered and whether you need to continue CPR.
Step 6: Continue with chest compressions and rescue breaths until the patient shows signs of life or the defibrillator tells you to stop so it can analyse the heartbeat again.
