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.
