We have recently made our defibrillator available to the public 24/7 by mounting it externally at our Dronfield office on Callywhite Lane.
Members of the public can call 999 in an emergency for the code to access the machine. This is made possible because the defibrillator is now listed with The Circuit, the national defibrillator register which is connected to every Ambulance Service in the UK.
According to The Circuit, when cardiac arrest strikes CPR and defibrillation can help double someone’s chance of survival, but many defibrillators never get used because emergency services don’t know where they are or how to access them.
We are delighted to have made our defibrillator available to the public 24/7 via ‘The Circuit’ and very proud to have done this in memory of our colleague Dave Woodhouse.
