Defibrillator action

At approx 10 am on Sunday 8 January a call was received on the village Emergency telephone system and our responder Kev Wigley responded to a person who had collapsed at Templecombe church. They took the defibrillator and arrived at the same time as the paramedics so in fact the defibrillator was not deployed.

It is reassuring to know the system works, and that all the team’s hard work and dedication ensured an efficient and professional attendance.

At 21.36 this evening 30th August a call was received for the defibrillator via the VETS telephone system, a 999 call had been made and the ambulance service advised the caller to locate and call out the defibrillator which he did. A responder attended a property on higher road and promptly assessed and monitored the patient until the ambulance service arrived.
    The defibrillator was not deployed and the patient was conscious and left in the safe hands of the ambulance service.
