There are two defibrillators located in the parish.  One is on the wall of Ashendon Village Hall and the other is on the wall of the Old Farmhouse beside the post box in Upper Pollicott. 

In an emergency, phone 999 for an ambulance and they will give you the access code of the defibrillator.  Get someone to switch on the defibrillator and to take the pads out, while you continue CPR. They should remove or cut through clothing to get to the casualty's bare chest. They also need to wipe away any sweat. The defibrillator will give you voice prompts on what to do.
