You might have noticed the new bright yellow box in our entrance which houses a defibrillator. Our first aiders are trained in how to use it, but it is also available to anybody who needs it and is close enough to get it within a few minutes. A defibrillator restarts a person’s heart in the event of a heart attack or heart failure and is far more effective than chest compressions.
If you needed the defibrillator, you would go to Penistone Leisure Centre, call 999 and they would talk you through what to do.
The more people who know the defibrillator is there, the more likely it is that someone who needs it can be helped – so please spread the word.
