LONG COMPTON FIRST RESPONDERS
Unfortunately this service no longer operates, however a new scheme will be operational shortly.
With LCFR funds, two new defibrillator cabinets have been purchased and installed at Long Compton Garage (CARS) on the Main Street and the other at the MOT centre on Old Hill / Old Road. These are in addition to the existing unit at The Red Lion.
The defibrillators are registered with the NHS and will be utilised when and if they are the closest machine.
The new scheme requires “runners” who will transport the defibrillator from the cabinets to the emergency site.
WE URGENTLY NEED RUNNERS TO BE REGISTERED FOR THE CABINETS, Ideally 20 runners in the village, who would receive a text/call advising them of location where to take defibrillator.
Training would be given by NHS, it is not an onerous task, but by registering your phone number you would be on a list of numbers of possible “runners” who could deliver the defibrillator.
