Guardian Team training

To ensure the devices and cabinets are kept rescue ready, the partnership carry out checks every two weeks on the equipment.

Having 18 devices in the community means a team of volunteers being available to carry out those checks.

This evenings the partnership carried out a training session for the "Guardians" and then had a team photo. The training included device and cabinet awareness as well as the audit process to record the checks.

We were really pleased that our "overseas" coordinator , Kyle joined us on a holiday from Australia !
Kyle was a founder member of the partnership before moving last year.

British Legion goes Live and United Reform Church is installed

The device and cabinet at the British Legion  has gone live and is registered on the South Western Ambulance system. 

The device was installed by our resident electrician Simon who kindly gives his time along with Danny.  Each cabinet takes about two hours to install.

In other news , the next new cabinet was installed tonight at the United Reform Church in the High Street.

Simon and Sophie installed this one today , which was kindly donated by a family in memory of their parents who used the church. 
The Device and Cabinet have been inside the church for a few months due to the permissions required to install this cabinet at he church.

The URC is a listed building and external works on a building like this has to be done very carefully.

We are very grateful for the support of the Church and the Planning Officer at Purbeck District Council.
