Chelford Three Defribrillators are now all commissioned!
The final Accessible External Defibrillator (AED) was commissioned by Sal Thompson of Knutsford Community First Responders Trust (KCFRT) at Chelford Village Hall on Bank Holiday Monday 6th May, there's dedication for you by a volunteer !
Chelford Together organised the fundraising to raise £6,000 for the 3 AED's in conjunction with KCFRT The final cabinet was paid for by David Wilson Homes, and the monies for the rest of the AED's were from individual and business contributions. Chelford Parish Council also supported the intiative.
The three defibrillators are located as follows
1. Outside Chelford Community Hub, Elmstead Road, Chelford
2. Outside the Egerton Arms (side of the Deli)
3. Outside Chelford Village Hall (on the wall facing the main road)
The AEDs are accessible 24 hours a day, and are on the North West Ambulance data base, so should someone phone for an ambulance in an emergency, they can if required direct them to get the nearest AED to start life saving procedures before medical help arrives. The AEDs are fully automated and prompt a user in what to do, so no experience is necessary to use, however it would be really great if as many residents of Chelford and business operators could undertake some basic training that could save a life.
Would you know what to do in an emergency situation? What can you do in the meantime?
The course covers life saving skills and use of AEDs
