In an emergency, please ring 999, where you will be triaged and, if required, will be given directions to the nearest defibrillator. The access code to the defibrillator cabinet number pad will then be given to you over the phone. No training is required to use one of these devices, as they are made for community use, and the device will provide you with all of the instructions you need, including voice and screen instructions showing you what to do. It is important to know that a defibrillator cannot harm anyone; if the patient does not require it, the device will identify this and not proceed with defibrillation.

All of our defibrillators are registered with the South West Ambulance Trust and are regularly checked by our volunteers to ensure that there are no issues with them. Each defibrillator cabinet has a green light, which shows that the electricity supply to the cabinet is working.

If you see that they have been tampered with or a red rather than green light is showing, please call Melksham Without Parish Council immediately on 01225 705700 or 07341 474234 (out of hours).

All of the parish council defibrillators are registered on the National Defibrillator Database
