First Aid

Defibrillator

Thanks to the Buckhorn Weston Village Community Trust (BWVCT), Buckhorn Weston has an AED defibrillator for emergency use. Defibrillators can save lives if used as soon as possible after the heart has stopped.

ALWAYS CALL 999 FIRST

The defibrillator is installed in a heated and alarmed cabinet on the front wall of The White House, next door to the Stapleton Arms.   The cabinet is NOT locked but it is alarmed.

Just open the cabinet door and take the defibrillator, in its case, to the casualty.  You don’t need any training to use it, full instructions are provided automatically when it’s switched on.

The BWVCT will stop the alarm and reset the defibrillator after it has been returned.  Please contact Vicky Moore if you need further advice. Vicky can also provide a list of Community First Aiders.
