Please be aware of the potential risks that may arise around the allotments and play your part by using and storing materials carefully such as glass, wires, stakes, slippery sheets etc. Always wear appropriate protection when using mechanical equipment.
We have an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in our allotment and is situated in the Clubhouse.
It is a portable life saving device that can give a casualty’s heart an electric shock, when it has stopped beating normally in a sudden cardiac arrest.
A defibrillator works by checking the casualty’s heart rhythm once the defibrillator pads are placed on their chest and giving them a shock if needed.
Defibrillators can be used on adults or children over one year old.
By using a defibrillator before an ambulance arrives, you can significantly increase someone’s chance of survival.
