Re-training for our first responders will be due in April/May 2015 but practice training will be available regularly

In a cardiac emergency CPR or Defibrillation response must be very quick. To a person in cardiac arrest, good quality and immediate CPR is vital, furthermore if a person is in need of defibrillation and receives it withing 2 minutes the survival rate is over 80%. This reduces by 7 to 10% each minute thereafter......

It is essential you have a plan in place before an emergency takes place.......be prepared

We suggest you consider the following BEFORE any emergency event

1. Wherever you are.... Familiarise yourself with where the Defibrillators are, in BAllynacally there are 2 fitted and which is the nearest one to your home, see the locations below.......

2. Look to the left column of this page and find trained "first responders" who you know on the list who live near you or near one of the defibrillators. Ask them for their phone numbers and enter them into your phone contacts as follows......... Make sure you are in their contact list too.

For example your first choice may be ...... 1. Mike McNamara DEFIB. 2. Mary Kenny DEFIB. and so on

In the event of an emergency or suspected cardiac event

Hopefully you will have help but If alone FIRST ring 112 or 999 for an ambulance or appoint someone to do it if possible while you are administering CPR.

If you have help then ask them to ring a local first responder and if practical send them to collect a defibrillator


When contacting a trained first responder by phone say "I need a defibrillator are you at home" If no answer or they are not at home, immediately go to your second choice, dont delay.

3. Being trained yourself if you feel their is anyone at risk, young or old in your house is always a good idea, at least you could be giving CPR while awaiting a defibrillator if needed. Also reading the information on these pages can help. Be Prepared!!
