Save a life in Selling
Selling Parish Council have two defibrillators thanks to the generosity and far-sightedness of residents.
The life-saving piece of equipment increases the chance of surviving a cardiac arrest from 6% to 74% when used alongside CPR in the first 3-5minutes.
The Automated External Defibrillator (AED), commonly known as a Defib, is specially designed for people with no medical background. It can save the life of someone who may be in cardiac arrest. You MUST call 999 before attempting to access a Defib!
If you think someone is having a cardiac arrest anywhere in Selling, CALL 999. Tell them where you are. The access code to the nearest Debif will be given to you by the Ambulance Service Control Room. They will talk you through using it.
The defibrillator is fully automatic and will also give you complete voice prompts on use. It will not administer a shock to anyone not needing one.
