Each of these machines costs something like £2,000.

re: Do you know where your nearest defibrillator is?

Think my nearest is Accrington Acadamy. Also there's one at Asda and I think there's one round the corner from the town hall on Broadway

re: Do you know where your nearest defibrillator is?

I hope you never find out Margaret. I was lucky in that the paramedics came quite quickly but it was all in vain. (I still dont like walking past that bit of the Arndale). I was unaware there were some available for public use .

Yes, and the ambulance will probably take you to Blackburn!

You never know until you are tested...and I hope to forego that.

I test my family quite regularly ..theyre used to getting phone calls from ambulance men/women and strangers with the words do you know the person whos phone this is .. shes ill ...shes been took in an ambulance to .... yes I know I can laugh .. and its hard being on the other side .. I know because ive been on the other side but then things seem to kick in first its panic . then what to do .. ring an ambulance, recovery position, check breathing,

Yes Jen, you have more experience than most...and of both sides of the coin...with yourself and with you looking after your mum.
Most of my experience was in a professional capacity...but even then, you are never really sure just how you will react. You hope that your training kicks in...and I have to say that in every case mine has.
I have also had a few alarms with Ma and so far, the nurse in me steps forward and pushes the daughter out of the way.
When Ma had her heart attack, it was like someone else took over and did the first aid stuff.
Himself says I am 'a cool half back'...it is afterward that it all hits home with me.

that's why I think everyone should have some basic first aid training ... should be taught it in schools .. and then if anything should happen when you out and about .. it teaches you not to panic ...

I think a lot of schools do some first aid stuff...especially the CPR...it is still scary though...even when you are trained.

re: Do you know where your nearest defibrillator is?

I know ... but it gives you a bit of confidence as well ..

Its not that long ago I did scare someone I dropped and had a fit right in front of him .. he'd never seen one before .. first he rang an ambulance for me, made sure I was alright .. and then he rang his dad .. when I came fully too .. he'd gone but the ambulancemen where there ... I had an ambulance parked outside mine for a couple of hours that day ... but I was grateful someone was there ... and made sure I was ok ...

Re: Do you know where your nearest defibrillator is?

Do not take that AED locations website as accurate (as in up to date) - it is not showing several of the defibs that are in Rawtenstall.
There is one outside the Library, another at the end of Kay street.

A first aiders training to use one of these is simple and for some weird reason is only valid for 12 months, yet the public can use them?
