A public access defibrillator has been installed in the phone box opposite the village hall, and a second one on a post close to Old Manor in High Casterton will be commissioned shortly.
These devices are in unlocked cabinets, can be used by any member of the public, and can play an essential part in trying to save the life of someone who is in cardiac arrest.
No specialist knowlege is required, the process is simple, and might just mean the difference between life and death. Although not absolutely necessary, a training session has already been held in the village, and it is hoped a second one will be arranged, to demonstrate the simplicity of the devices and give people the confidence to use them when the need arises. Watch the village Notice Boards for this.
