There are TWO Public Access Defibrillators now located in Nayland – on the outside wall of Nayland Fire Station and on the outside wall of Nayland Village Hall.
Please familiarise yourself with these locations and let your friends, family and neighbours know too.
Always dial 999 in an emergency, the call handler will know there is a defibrillator nearby and will provide the access code if needed.
‘Minutes matter’ when it comes to a sudden cardiac arrest. Public Access Defibrillators can save vital time whilst waiting for the emergency services to arrive and can dramatically improve a person’s chances of survival when administered within a few minutes.
