The Fox Inn, Dosthill
The Fox Inn, Dosthill, is our latest installation of an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator). Available 24 hours a day! With thanks to Councillor Michael Greatorex, for raising the funds, to purchase the defibrillator and thanks to The Fox Inn, Dosthill for siting the defibrillator.
It’s great to see another AED placed in the community, ready to save lives. Training and familiarisation, albeit very useful, it is not required to operate an AED. These devices will talk you through the whole process, step by step. The emergency services call handler will stay on the phone line, until the ambulance arrives! Reassuringly, you can’t do any harm with an AED, as these clever little devices will only ever deliver a ‘shock’ if it determines the right conditions in the heart!
Don’t be a spectator, spectators don’t save lives!
