Defibrillator training – thank you for attending!

Thanks to everyone from Longdown and the surrounding villages who came to the Defibrillator Training run by South West Ambulance service last Thursday 26th September at Longdown Village Hall.

A group of around 40 local residents were given training on initial patient assessment, CPR and how to use the defibrillator itself. We were delighted by such a strong turnout with attendees coming from other local villages, including Christow, Ide and Kenn. Feedback from the attendees was that it was a very useful session, with some having had first hand experience of the need to use a defibrillator. The Parish Council thanks you for your support and interest in this important local service.
