Restart a Heart – Defib awareness

19th October 2022, 9:28am | By Mark Edwards | Event Date : 20230110

Restart a Heart!! – sign up for an awareness session at Calne Town Hall on Tuesday 10th January by emailing calne@calne.gov.uk to register. The session will start at 6pm.

The availability of defibrillators can help to save lives. Calne Town now has six community defibrillators at Phelps Parade by Iceland, outside Colemans Farm Community Centre, outside Bremhill View Social Club, outside Quemerford Post Office and Stores, outside The Recreation Club at the Recreation Ground and outside Beversbrook Sports and Community Facility. Further units are planned for outside the Bug and Spider, outside Holy Trinity School and the Spar shop on James Avenue.

A defibrillator is a device used to give an electric shock to help restart a patient’s heart when they are in cardiac arrest. When someone suffers a cardiac arrest the heart stops and blood is no longer being pumped around their body. The longer they go without emergency life-support, the harder it is to restart their heart. This is where you and your community could make a difference. Sign up today.

The new defibrillators were funded by Calne Town Council and Calne Area Board.
