Big Local has purchased and fitted a Defibrillator for public use. The Defibrillator is sited at Distington Community Centre.


The Green light indicates the unit is working normally (checked weekly).

To access the defibrillator you ring 999 and tell them your location i.e. Distington Community Centre CA14 5TE. The 999 operative will give you a code to access the equipment. The unit has audi and visual guides and will guide you through usage. It will prompt you with clear instructions at each step, including checks on the patients condition. Please note .... the unit will not (and cannot) allow you to shock someone unless they really need it!
