Village Defibrillators & CPR Training

Updated: 23rd March 2020


Ampney Crucis has two village defibrillators, one located outside the Village Hall, and the other on an external wall of the Village School.

The machines are very easy to use and provide automated instructions as soon as they are opened. The South West Ambulance Service Trust (SWAST) also provide a free annual training session on the CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) techniques, including use of the defibrillator and how to place a patient into the recovery position.

The training is designed to provide basic first aid until arrival of the emergency services, in the event that you are with a person who suffers a heart attack.

Taking part in the training will not result in you being listed as an emergency 'go to' person but it does provide valuable skills and advice in the event that you happen to be with a person who suffers a heart attack and are waiting for the emergency services to arrive.
