Defibillator for public use

is located in a yellow box outside the Post Office. In emergency ring 999 and you will receive instructions for use.

This has been supplied for public use by the Community Heartbeat Trust, a Leicestershire based charity whose aim is to get survival after heart attacks up to around 50% from a current figure of around 5%. The CHT has been working with the East Midlands Ambulance service and local parish councils over the past few years to establish community defibrillator schemes in Leicestershire, and so far there are over 100 such schemes, all meeting ambulance service specifications.

If you or someone you are with suffers a possible heart incident or Cardiac Arrest, always dial 999 first. You will then be directed to the nearest yellow defibrillator cabinet (there are others around Coalville area) and if appropriate, given the access code of the cabinet and given instructions on how to use it.

All projects in Leicestershire done either by CHT or by the ambulance service directly use Hi-Visibility yellow cabinets for easy recognition and where possible the same actual defibrillator model for ease of use and standardisation in support and the fast downloading of information for the hospital. CHT also works with BT to adopt telephone kiosks for defibrillator use and with the NHS.

CHT works closely with the Leicestershire police and recently has helped them establish publicly accessible community defibrillators on all the local police units in the county. CHT also works with Lions, Rotary, Karen Ball, and other charities and are indebted to the support these other organisations have given to this project. CHT makes no money from the provision of equipment and is staffed by volunteers. Any donations gratefully received!
