Defibrillator Installed in School

We have installed a defibrillator in school which is located in the Principal's office.

Hopefully we will never have to use this piece of equipment but it has proved to be a life saver on many occasions in the past. Statistics show that people suffering a heart attach outside of hospital where no defibrillator is available have a 7% chance of survival, this rises to a remarkable 80% when the equipment is close at hand.

We have chosen to store the defibrillator in the Principal's office as this has a telephone line and the first thing to do in any emergency is to make a 999 call to the Ambulance Service who will stay on the line and talk you through your care for the patient.
