Defibrillator installed at Civic Centre

Funding obtained from ‘Awards for All’ has enabled the Community Association to purchase a defibrillator and box which are positioned at the front of the building. Although the box is locked anyone can access the defibrillator simply by dialling 999 and telling the operator that the defibrillator is outside Luddenden Foot Civic Centre, Station Road, Luddenden Foot HX2 6AD. The operator will then give the code to unlock the cabinet.

The defibrillator is easy to operate with instructions given as to how to place the pads and when to stand back while the patient gets a shock. Training on use of the defibrillator has been given to representatives of the user groups by Mr David Atkinson a first aid trainer who is a retired fireman.
