The project to bring a heart defibrillator to Barkston Ash has become a reality.
Barkston Ash Parish Council is pleased to announce that a Public Access Defibrillator (Heart Restarter) was fitted at the village hall on 14th June 2017. It is located in a locked cabinet on the outside of the hall and the code is accessed by dialing 999.
Emergency services are aware of our defibrillator location and will automatically give out the location and code to anyone making a 999 call that may require its use within a 600m radius of the village hall.
The defibrillator has been provided by the British Heart Foundation along with CPR training resources.
