Hurst Phone Box Defibrillator
Located in the old BT red phone box
Junction of Tape Lane and Hight Street Hurst
Public access defibrillators (PADs) are a briefcase sized box on the wall containing a PAD. It's there for anyone to use on someone in cardiac arrest.
They are simple and safe. The machine gives clear spoken instructions. Although they don't all look the same, they all function in broadly the same way.
Once in position, the defibrillator detects the heart's rhythm. It won't deliver a shock unless one is needed.
After a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces someone's chance of survival by 10 per cent.
