New defibrillator installed outside the council offices and Street Library!

Street Parish Council are pleased to say we have arranged for a new defibrillator installed outside the Parish Rooms and Somerset Libraries Street.
The St John Ambulance website states that “a cardiac arrest can happen to anyone. Every year approximately 55 out of every 100,000 people experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, with most occurring in the home or workplace. In 7 out of 10 cases, CPR is attempted by a bystander. In less than 1 out of 10 cases, a public access defibrillator (AED) is reported as being used.
*A bystander performing CPR and using an automated external defibrillator (AED) can increase the chances of survival by two to four-fold.*
