Wall-mounted defibrillators on campus
Defibrillators are available in the reception areas of Plowden, Taunton and Sammy Ofer Centre in case of emergencies on campus.
A defibrillator is a device that gives the heart an electric shock when someone’s has stopped. Defibrillators are failsafe and using one in the minutes before an ambulance arrives can double someone’s chances of survival.
You can use a defibrillator with no training as the machine analyses the person’s heart rhythm and then uses visual or voice prompts to guide you through each step.
As you start to use the defibrillator please make sure someone has also called an ambulance.
For more information please contact the security team.
