Angarrack is proud to announce that after the successful fundraising Angarrack now has a defibrillator available 24/7 for public access. It's on the wall outside the Angarrack Inn on the Steamers Hill side of the pub.

You don't need special training to use it as the machine and 999 ambulance service will talk you through what to do (though training will help make you more familar with the machine and CPR compressions)

2019 Defibrillator update

2019 Defibrillator update

Defibrillators are most effective when placed so they can be accessed as quickly as possible, and ideally within 3 minutes.

With the village having two hills and a long road along the river, that's a challenge with a single defibrillator. So the defibrillator team has been working on getting more defibrillators to cover the village.

They've managed to access enough funding to get three more defibrillators for the village.

Further to last year's meeting, the intent was to have one at the Community Centre, and another near the viaduct on Riverside with the location of the 4th machine to be decided at the meeting. They all need an electrical connection to keep them charged.  read more »

Restart a Heart

The availability of defibrillators can help to save lives.

A defibrillator is a device used to give an electric shock to help restart a patient’s heart when they are in cardiac arrest. When someone suffers a cardiac arrest the heart stops and blood is no longer being pumped around their body. The longer they go without emergency life-support, the harder it is to restart their heart. This is where you and your community, organisation or business could make a difference.
