Halesworth has a defibrillator for emergency use situated on the outside wall on the disabled toilet in the Thoroughfare car park, at the entrance to the tunnel through to the Thoroughfare. This is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In the first instance dial 999 and report the incident to the emergency services. This way the ambulance service is aware of the incident and will dispatch an emergency vehicle.
The ambulance service will then give you the code for the defibrillator and guide you on how to use it.
There are also defibrillators located at the Library (accessible in Library opening hours) and on the outside wall of the Co op fuel station.
The Town Council can confirm that the defibrillator is registered and ‘rescue ready’ with the ambulance service.
The Town Council can also confirm that the defibrillator sited in the Thoroughfare car park is not one of the makes listed that has recently experienced faults as discussed by the BBC.
