Stapleford Community Defibrillator Installed At The Magpie Public House, Stapleford 

11th July 2016 Broxtowe Borough Council, Councillor Richard MacRae, Latest News, Local Businesses Tags: , , , , , 2 Comments

Another Community Defibrillator has been successfully installed in Stapleford today. 

Stapleford Councillors John McGrath and Richard MacRae were joined by an officer from Broxtowe Borough Council and former Mayor of Stapleford Rik Sharmer to unveil the defibrillator earlier today. 

The two Stapleford Councillors would like to thank United Living who are the contractors for Broxtowe Borough Council who kindly funded the life saving equipment. They would also like to thank Rik Sharmer for joining them too. 

Installing Public Access Defibrillators provides 24 hour access to vital lifesaving equipment.  The defibrillator delivers an electric shock to the heart in an attempt to re-stabilise the rhythm following a cardiac arrest.  In the event of an emergency, the person who called 999 for an ambulance would be given the code to the cabinet and have immediate access to the device.

    Sounds all good but what about having one where all the main shops are where a lot of the public are going to be!! Seems like a pointless place to put it at the top end!!

      There is already a Defibrillator outside The Meeting Place next to The Horse and Jockey Pub on Nottingham Road. This covers most of main shopping area.
      Next week another Defibrillator will be installed outside The West End Pub at the junction of Derby Road and Brookhill Street. This will cover the Stapleford from the other end.
      The one recently installed at The Magpie covers the Westerlands area and right across to the area around The Vista. There will also be another around Moorbridge Lane and there is also on at the Coop Store on Hickings Lane.

      The Ambulance service recommend that each Defibrillator covers an area of 500 metres around where it is placed. Having them spaced out means that within reason the whole of Stapleford will be covered by Defibrillators, this you must admit is a great thing to do.

      No training is required to use a Defibrillator as when you call 999 the operator will tell you where to locate the Defibrillator and the code to open the cabinet. They will also talk you through how to use the device.
      The actual device talks to you as you use it too and will not work if it’s not required. So you can not shock someone unless they actually need it.
