New Defibrillator Installed In Stapleford

Donna MacRae  reports:

Thanks to Stapleford Councillors Richard MacRae  (left) and John McGrath  (right) a new Community Defibrillator has been installed at St Lukes Church, Moorbridge Lane, Stapleford.

The Community Defibrillator has been supplied by United Living at Broxtowe Borough Council who have been installing the life saving devices all over Broxtowe Borough.

This is now the 5th Defibrillator installed in Stapleford which is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Upon calling 999 if a Defibrillator is required then the operator will give the location of the nearest device.

There are Community Defibrillators at the following locations:

The Meeting Place on Derby Road which was organised by Stapleford Police.

The Coop Store, Hickings Lane organised by Stapleford Community Group.

The West End Pub, Derby Road organised by Stapleford Community Group and Councillors McGrath and MacRae with United Living.

The Magpie Pub, Toton Lane, Stapleford organised by Councillors MacRae and McGrath with United Living.

St Lukes Church, Moorbridge Lane organised by Councillors McGrath and MacRae with United Living.

Again a massive thank you to United Living at Broxtowe Borough Council for supplying a number of these devices.

These devices are self explanatory and once activated talk you through each step to use them, no training is required.

However anyone interested in learning how to use a Community Defibrillator or learning how to perform CPR can contact us via staplefordcommunitygroup@gmail.com and put LearnCPRInNottinghamshire in the subject heading.

    You can never have too many of these valuable potential lifesavers available in my opinion..
    Is there anywhere where you can find an up to date list of where these are now installed, both in Bramcote and the local area. (realising Stapleford’s are now mentioned)
    i know there is now one at The Bramcote Memorial Hall (Church Street) – maybe a complete list of their locations on this site somewhere could be useful? – just a thought .
