Barkston Ash Parish Council is pleased to announce that a Public Access Defibrillator (Heart Restarter) will be fitted at the village hall on 14th June 2017. It will be 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. To support the installation we will be providing CPR and defibrillator training sessions in the village hall on :

Saturday 24th June 2017  @ 5pm
Thursday 29th June 2017 @ 7pm

The session is expected to last 30-45mins and no previous experience is required. Numbers at each session are limited by equipment so please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
