The Heartbeat Haddenham campaign has been remarkably successful: in just nine months, it has helped Haddenham to acquire no less than six publicly accessible automated defibrillators, and these are available 24/7 to assist first aiders in the event that someone suffers a cardiac arrest.
The sixth defibrillator in the village was installed in late December 2015, on the Roman Catholic Church facing Crabtree Road.
Would you know how to respond to someone who had collapsed?
Would you feel even vaguely able to determine if the unconscious person was breathing or had a pulse?
And if you could handle these basic diagnostic tests, might you then feel confident enough to administer CPR in an effective manner?
Or know how to make use of an automated defibrillator?
If your answers are less than positive, you may be interested to learn that another CPR & Defibrillator Workshops is being offered here in Haddenham. The event is free of charge, but this next workshop is likely to be the last in a series to be offered without charge. Booking is essential.
This last workshop will take place on:
- Monday 16th May at 7.30pm
The venue is the Baptist Schoolroom in Stockwell, and the session will last an hour-and-a-half.
If you want to learn how to act in the case of an emergency and potentially save a life, please register by Email: email@example.com, or by phone: 01844 292273 (Tony Warris).
