Buckfastleigh Town Council has taken on maintenance of 4 Automated External Defibrillators or AEDs that have been provided recently in Buckfastleigh & Buckfast by fundraising from the Women’s Institute and the Buckfastleigh Fire & Rescue service.
4 steps to take if someone is having a cardiac arrest
Cardiac arrests can happen to anyone, at any time. The following steps give someone the best chance of survival. If you come across someone in cardiac arrest:
- Call 999
- Start CPR
- Ask someone to bring a defibrillator if there’s one nearby
- Turn on the defibrillator and follow its instructions.
