ENDMOOR residents now have access to a life-saving defibrillator.

Funds raised by Endmoor and District First Responders have bought the machine – and Preston Richard Parish Council has paid for a public access box on a wall at the village hall.

The defibrillator can be accessed by members of the public who dial 999 for an ambulance.

Ambulance control will give the caller a code to open the box.

Already, teams of villagers have been trained in basic life saving skills and in using the defibrillator by responders, who have gained the Gold Award for delivering the Heartstart scheme locally.

More people are to be trained in the next few months – for details see www.endmoor.org.uk or call team leader Martin Smith on 01539 567453.
