CPR and Defibrillator

There will be a talk on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and use of a defibrillator at the Community Centre at 7pm on Tuesday 25th July.

We hope that it never happens to us but suddenly a person collapses and perhaps you are the only one there. How to get help?


In an emergency always call 999 first.

North Luffenham has a defibrillator sited at the ‘The Fox’ but if you are on your own you cannot leave the person who has collapsed to go and get it.

The village has a Village Emergency Telephone System (VETS) and if you dial

01780 322070

This number enables one of the volunteers, who have had training in the use of the defibrillator, to be contacted quickly.

When you dial 01780 322070 you will hear the following message:

“Welcome to VETS. In a moment you will be connected to one of the village helpers. Please state clearly the assistance you require.”

One of the aim of the session is to update the VETS volunteers but all are welcome to learn more about CPR and defibrillators.

There will be an opportunity to donate to support VETS and the Community HeartBeat Trust.
