In the past, when a 999 call was received by the ambulance service, a volunteer community responder was alerted in addition to an ambulance. However, due to circumstances beyond our control and linked to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are no longer able to deliver this life-saving service.
Instead, we have installed several Automated External Defibrillators around Storrington. They are accessible to everyone and are in bright yellow cabinets that are weather-proof. However, we have also arranged the following CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) training sessions which includes the use of defibrillators. These are 'hands on' sessions, are open to everyone and will be held :-
Thursday, June 23rd 7:00pm at the football club lounge
Monday, June 27th 2:00pm in the Leisure Centre
Saturday, July 9th 2:00pm in the Leisure Centre
Each session will last ~2hrs and costs £5 per person. Because of limitation on space, we can only accept advance reservations.
CPR training may enable YOU to save a life. That life could be a friend, someone in your family or YOU!
