                       Defibrillators available in the Forest of Dean




               Local History


Wherever you live, wherever you work, simply knowing the location and postcode of your nearest Public Access Defibrillator may save valuable seconds when ringing the Emergency Services to report a suspected cardiac arrest.

 When you dial 999 the Ambulance Call Handler will ask a series of questions and should your patient require it, they will identify the nearest available defibrillator to you, and give you access details. This information will be freely given if you are within 200 metres of a defibrillator that the South Western Ambulance Service is aware of, and if there is another person available to go and fetch the device.

We are attempting to produce a list of those currently available in the Forest of Dean area and would appreciate any assistance.

Here is a list supplied by the Ambulance Service but they do mention that it is being regularly added to.
