Babraham Parish Defibrillator

The Heartsafe defibrillator – sited on a pole near the village postbox opposite The George Inn – is now installed and registered.

The defibrillator is designed to be used by people who have no experience of helping a person with a suspected heart attack.

All you need to know is on the cabinet and you will be given instructions by the defibrillator. To protect the contents, the cabinet is locked and you will need a four-digit code from the ambulance service to unlock it.

If you are supporting a heart attack victim, simply call 999 as usual: the operator will check for the need for a defibrillator and will let you know where the defibrillator is and the access code.

The operator will help you along with the guidance provided by the defibrillator system.
