On Thursday 19th March Heartbeat Haddenham will be launched at a meeting at 7.30pm at the Scout & Guide Centre, Banks Park.
Heartbeat Haddenham is an initiative to get publicly accessible automated defibrillators installed in the village. An automated external defibrillator (AED) delivers an electrical current through the chest to shock the heart back into a normal rhythm, if someone is having a heart attack.
In Thame a number of defibrillators have been provided thanks to the efforts of Staying Alive Thame, a local community group, with support from the South Central Ambulance Service. Heartbeat Haddenham has been established to make similar provision in Haddenham.
The Parish Council is supportive. The Beer Festivals Trust funded the existing defibrillator at Stonehill House (Abbeyfield) and the Village Fete has already agreed to buy another one. Staying Alive Thame is willing to share the cost of a further defibrillator at Haddenham & Thame Parkway Station.
Come to the meeting on 19th March and find out how we can make Haddenham a safer place to live. Hear how important it is to have publicly accessible defibrillators readily available. They cost about £1,500 each, installed and ready for action in case of an emergency. You can read more about automated external defibrillators here.
