Life-saving equipment has been provided by Moulton Parish Council as a result of fundraising by residents and district councillors.

A defibrillator has been funded by people in Moulton Chapel as well as councillors Casson, Grocock and Woolf.

Helen Worth, clerk to Moulton Parish Council, said the defibrillator is a potentially life saving piece of equipment for young and old alike.

She said: “Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) knows no boundaries but no matter where or when it strikes, early use of a defibrillator can help save lives.

“If you think someone is having a cardiac arrest the first course of action is to phone 999 to ensure an ambulance is on its way. The operator will ask your name, contact number and location. The defibrillator is in a yellow cabinet on the outside wall of The Jolly Farmer pub at Moulton Chapel.

“The operator will give you the code for the cabinet. Type this into the keypad and the cabinet will open to give access to the defibrillator. Follow the instructions on how to use it on the victim.”

A training session has been organised for Monday, October 19 (6.30pm) in Moulton Chapel Youth & Community Centre.
