Did you know Flax Bourton has access to vital life saving equipment? An AED (automated external defibrillator) is a device that gives the heart an electric shock if it has stopped (cardiac arrest) and there are now two defibrillators in the village. Using a defibrillator in the minutes before an ambulance arrives can double someone’s chances of survival!
The defibrillators are stored in distinctive green ‘HeartSafe’ AED cabinets, with a green sign above. One is
located on the side of the village hall and the other at the school gate. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you think you need to use the defibrillator dial 999 and the emergency services will guide you through what to do. For further information, please click here
