The Parish of Marchwood has just got 3 more heart defibrillators for public use in emergencies.
They are located at
- Southampton Football Club (main security office) Long Lane.
- Lloyd Recreation Ground (on the sports pavilion) Main Road.
- Marchwood Industrial Park (main security office) North Road.
These are in addition to the one located at Marchwood Village Hall, village centre (by main front door).
The defib’s are all in locked cabinets and the ambulance service will provide the code to access them during an emergency.
We hope to provide demonstration on how to use the defib’s and will put more information on here with dates and times. However, anyone can use them with out training as they talk to you and give you clear instructions. The machine will not shock unless it has too and this is automatic. Even children could use the defibs they are that easy.
We must say a very big thank you to Southampton Football Club, ABP Southampton, Lloyds Trustee and Marchwood Community Association who have all paid for these vital pieces of equipment and make them available for public use.
