New Public Access Defibrillator in Easingwold

Saturday 22nd October 2022

Residents in Easingwold, North Yorkshire have access to a new defibrillator in the town. York-based national housebuilder Persimmon Homes installed the public access defibrillator on their new development in town.

Councillors recently joined representatives from Persimmon to unveil the new defibrillator ahead of ‘Restart A Heart’ day, raising awareness of the life-saving difference than defibrillators and CPR can make.

Figures from the London Ambulance Service show that survival rates for cardiac arrests are more than five times higher when a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) is used.

Easingwold Town Council’s defibrillator map shows members of the public where their nearest defibrillator is in and around the town.

This latest addition has been purchased with funds raised by Easingwold Town Council, Easingwold District Lions and Friends of St Monica’s Hospital and has been installed by Persimmon on their development The Weald.
