Firsdown Defibrillator

Defibrillator Training

Defibrillator Training


The defibrillator that has been installed in the telephone kiosk in Firs Rd can be used by anyone without training, under the guidance of the 999 emergency operator. However, the Community Heartbeat Trust does run short information and training sessions in conjunction with the local ambulance service to inform the community and to create awareness of the issues surrounding treating a patient in the community. It is not a formal classroom course but designed to answer questions, give basic instruction, be interactive and create confidence.


The Parish Council would like to run such a training session but need to gauge the level of interest within Firsdown. The training session is likely to be an evening or weekend event. If you are interested in taking part, please use the “contact us” link on the website to register your interest and state whether you would prefer an evening or weekend session.


Community Policing

Local Policing


The attachment from the Alderbury Rural Beat provides an update on local policing issues. The crime summary shows that much of the reported crime in South Wiltshire is opportune, and simple measures such as not leaving valuables on show in parked cars, and keeping garden tools and machinery in locked sheds, will hopefully act as a deterrent.
