Defibrillator training for new Budleigh devices
PUBLISHED: 12:00 28 July 2017
Defibrillator awareness seminars are being held in Budleigh Salterton on Wednesday, August 2.
People are being urged to go to the events at 3.30pm and 7pm in The Public Hall.
Three public-access defibrillators have been fitted in the town – at Steamer Steps, the Lime Kiln car park and the Public Hall.
Signs have been put up to direct people towards the lifesaving devices and they have been logged with the South Western Ambulance Service, so paramedics will instantly know where to go when one is activated.
The devices were funded jointly by Budleigh in Business and the town council, which maintains responsibility for the devices.
A spokesman for the town council said: “Obviously, we hope the defibrillators will never have to be used, but it is important that, if they are needed, as many people as possible feel confident to use them.”
