New Device Arriving in Studland

The installation team were out tonight in Studland putting up the new cabinet at the village hall.

The community of Studland village held a fund raising event in connection with Her Majesty's The Queens 90th Birthday.  From this the committee along with the Parish Council agreed to siting the cabinet and device.

There is still some work to be done to connect the box up electrically and register the site with South Western Ambulance which hopefully will be done in the next week.

New Defibrillator taken to incident

A call to the Coastguard just after midday , stating a male on a vessel in Swanage was having a heart attack saw one of the new devices taken to the scene.

The vessel made its way to the pier to be met by the emergency services.  A RNLI crewman hearing event on the radio also attended.

The Coastguard team arrived and one of the team obtained the Defibrillator from the Rowing Club close to the pier.

Thankfully on arrival  the male didn't require the device and shortly after a paramedic turned up to take over the medical care. 

The AED was checked and returned to the cabinet ready for service. 

The male was treated by South Western Ambulance.
