New defibrillator for the Parish


Our new defibrillator is now in service. It is located in the entrance porch to the Village Hall and is accessible when the hall is closed. In the event of an emergency call 999 and report the location of the Village Hall (Church Rd, Swindon Village, Cheltenham GL51 9QP). The emergency call handler will provide you with the code you need to unlock the defibrillator cabinet. The defibrillator device can then be removed from the cabinet and taken out of its protective pouch. The device is switched on using the central button and the pads are pulled from the device using the green tab. The machine issues audio instructions to the user. The user manual for the defibrillator can be viewed here. There is also a training video available here. If the defibrillator is serviceable it should flash a green light every few seconds. If the light is flashing red or if there is no light or if the device is emitting a sound please notify the Parish Clerk immediately.
