Thanks to Stapleford Councillors Richard MacRae and John McGrath a new Community Defibrillator has been installed at St Lukes Church, Moorbridge Lane, Stapleford.
The Community Defibrillator has been supplied by United Living at Broxtowe Borough Council who have been installing the life saving devices all over Broxtowe Borough.
This is now the 5th Defibrillator installed in Stapleford which is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Upon calling 999 if a Defibrillator is required then the operator will give the location of the nearest device.
There are Community Defibrillators at the following locations,
The Meeting Place on Derby Road which was organised by Stapleford Police.
The Coop Store, Hickings Lane. Organised by Stapleford Community Group.
The West End Pub, Derby Road. Organised by Stapleford Community Group and Councillors McGrath and MacRae with United Living.
The Magpie Pub, Toton Lane. Organised by Councillors MacRae and McGrath with United Living.
St Lukes Church, Moorbridge Lane. Organised by Councillors MacRae and McGrath with United Living.
Again a massive thank you to United Living at Broxtowe Borough Council for supplying a number of these devices.
These devices are self explanatory and once activated talk you through each step to use them, no training is required.

Practise Hands-only CPR with our BHF PocketCPR app
The free app explains how to carry out Hands-only CPR on someone in cardiac arrest using hard and fast chest compressions. Also, it allows you to practise by making use of the accelerometer in your smartphone. It means your phone can:
- measure the rate and depth of compressions,
- telling you if you need to do the compressions faster or slower,
- or whether you should push harder or softer.
If someone’s had a cardiac arrest, they’ll be unconscious, not breathing or not breathing normally.
The person will die within minutes without immediate help. Act quickly and Call Push Rescue.
CALL 999 immediately.
PUSH hard and fast on the centre of the chest 30 times.
Give two RESCUE breaths.
Keep going until the emergency medical services arrive. If you’d rather not give rescue breaths then call 999 and deliver Hands-only CPR. That’s better than doing nothing.
Awsworth, Babbington and Cossall Youth Club invited Richard MacRae over to teach some of the members how to perform CPR earlier this evening.
Having great fun and learning a life saving skill at this evenings session.
All being well another session will take place to teach more of the children who use the Awsworth, Babbington and Cossall Youth Club at a future event.
