Two public access defibrillators have been installed in Brough and Elloughton for use by the public in the event of a medical emergency. One is located in Elloughton on the outside wall of the East Yorkshire Motor Services bus depot and the second is located in Brough outside Brough Methodist Church on Welton Road.
After a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and defibrillation reduces someone’s chance of survival by 10 per cent. A defibrillator delivers a high energy electric shock, which when given to the heart in some types of cardiac arrest, may restore a more stable rhythm. During a 999 call the emergency operator will release a code that gives access to a defibrillator if there is one nearby. The operator will talk the user through its use. The purchase and installation has been funded by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council Local Grant Fund following a successful bid by the Town Council.
A familiarisation event has already been held for residents in Elloughton and another will be held at 7.30pm at Brough Methodist Church on Wednesday 20th April.
