Each year 75,000 people die from sudden cardiac arrest in the UK, however chances of survival increase dramatically if someone is treated with a defibrillator quickly.

Many of the Centres received funding from the Council for the equipment.
Defibrillators are available in the following council owned buildings:
If you would like to find out where the nearest defibrillator is located in case of an emergency, go to www.defibfinder.uk .

For charities and community groups interested in owning a publicly accessible defibrillator for the good of their community, the British Heart Foundation will be releasing a funding stream in October of this year to contribute to the cost of these worthy projects.
