Life-saving defibrillator to be installed at Highbridge's Apex Park

A brand new life-saving defibrillator has been installed at Apex Park in Highbridge.

The equipment – an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) - is available for use on someone having a suspected heart attack.

It has been installed on the wall of the park’s office building in the Marine Drive car park, pictured above.

The equipment is housed an eye-catching tamper proof, yellow box. Crucially, the defibrillator fitted is a speaking-instructional device meaning no medical training is required to use it.

In the event of an emergency, people should call 999 and the emergency call handler will advise of the AED’s location (if the caller is not already aware of it).

Sedgemoor District Council paid for the equipment to be installed. It is due to be formally unveiled at an event on Saturday morning (December 10th).
