IN AN EMERGENCY
- Ring 999
- (If the clubhouse is unlocked, a telephone is available just inside the central door on the wall on the right. There is another telephone beside the bar.)
- Ask for the Ambulance service
- Tell the operator the Club postcode (PO14 3QS) (this is on the front of the defibrillator cabinet)
- The operator will tell you the lock code
- Open the cabinet and retrieve the defibrillator
- Maintain communications with the ambulance service
- The defibrillator has two sets of pads:
- Adults (aged 8 years and over)
- Pediatric (aged under 8 years)
- The adult pads are connected to the unit
- Swap the pads if the patient appears to be under 8. Do not waste time if you are unsure.
- Attach the pads as shown on the diagram and switch the unit on
- The defibrillator will now communicate with you to inform you of the operations
- No further interaction is required
The defibrillator was funded by a grant from Hammond Memorial Hall Trust because it would serve the Club and those from the local Community and further afield who use the Salterns park.
