This flyer was hand-delivered with an explanation to 20 local shops and businesses closest to the Cinema Defibrillator yesterday afternoon.

It was also delivered to Library staff and more will be delivered in the Town Centre today.

If you run a business in Marple Centre then please consider attending this seminar, or sending one of your staff.

This can also apply to shops and businesses near to the Fire Station Defib or the one on the Police Station in the park.

What John says is absolutely correct, the training is not essential to be able to use them as the defibrillators are so smart nowadays. Still an advantage though, as having done the training one will know what to expect and should therefore have more confidence.

This message is not only going out to people who use this site. It is correct that it would be best for shopkeepers and business owners and other people who are regularly in the town centre to receive the training and this is why a flyer will be dropped through the letter boxes of nearby businesses specifically inviting them to attend and posters will be displayed locally too. If there is a big demand then it may also be possible to arrange further training, this can be decided after the response to this session.
Thanks for info

The really important thing to understand is that actually training is not necessary (though useful) the defib will tell you what to do. Once taken out of box, press the start button and follow the instructions. (Even if trained, in emergency situation panic may set in, so it is all talked through for you) It will not work unless it has worked out it is needed, so no chance of shocking patient unless required.

If you need the defib, just use it trained or not

I think this is such an important issue that people in Marple should be made more aware of this instruction rather than only the people who read this site. I think the people who should be given instruction in how to use the Defibrillator are the shopkeepers and other businesses who are likely to be in Marple for most of each day rather than Joe Bloggs who might be around Marple once or twice  a week, I say this because there are only 50 places available for instruction. Maybe there could be made more instruction dates available to us so that if more than 50 people know how to use it there is more chance of saving somebodies life.

Marple Town Centre Defibrillator News 16 May 2018

The Marple Town Centre Defibrillator has now been installed. We'd like to send a big thank you to electrician Mike Beese of TBG INSPECTION SERVICES (pictured below) for providing installation support to the Marple Town Centre Defibrillator Project.



The Defib is waiting for registration with the NW Ambulance Services before it can go into service (at which point the out-of-service sign will be removed). Once active a call to NWAS on 999 will get you the access codes if they agree that you need to use it.

Marple Town Centre Defibrillator News 25 April 2018

After protracted discussions with a variety of local businesses and landlords we are delighted to report that a location for the new Marple Town Centre Defibrillator has at last been agreed and it will shortly be installed on the front of the Regent Cinema.

It's been a lengthy process to find the most suitable location – much longer than it took to raise the money thanks to some very generous local people - but after considering potential sites between Rose Hill and Possett Bridge, and drawing lots of circles on maps, we've chosen the most prominent location that satisfied all the requirements.

We'd like to say a very big thank you to the owners of the Regent, who have been very positive and quick to support the project. We look forward to having a little celebration once the defibrillator is installed and commissioned to thank everyone who has supported the Appeal.

Other recent news is that the scheme operated by estate agent Julian Wadden enabling sellers to donate a proportion of the commission on the sale of their properties to the defibrillator's maintenance has provided its first contribution of £122. This will cover maintenance costs well into a second year.

You can read more via the link below about how the defibrillator project has been funded by donations from Marple Area Committee, Stephanie Lorusso (of Malcolm Shaw & Son), GT Landscapes and Construction, Marple Civic Society, the Marple Website, Shop Local Club Card and Julian Wadden.

I wasn't having a dig.

The other thing to do is get the location of the equipment added to Google Maps. I just tried it and found the nearest one in Maps is in Romiley on the wall outside the Forum entrance. It shouldn't be too hard to get the Marple ones added.
Marple Bridge has had one in the old telephone kiosk for quite a long time
Don't look for the light at the end of the tunnel -  stomp along there and turn the bl**dy thing on yourself!

It's frustrating though, have tried GoodSam Alerter and that doesn't have any Marple Defibs listed. Maybe will do something on the new site just for Marple.

Have been advised by Marple Firefighters that their Defib is now active as of today. It's on the front of the Fire Station.

Also learned that there is one at Marple Golf Club (open hours only) and there is to be a public access one installed at Brabyns Preparatory School soon.

I will add these to the list we have at the bottom of the Defib Appeal page and then look at putting them on a map.

That's now here: http://www.marple.website/community-projects/town-centre-defibrillator-appeal.html

We will have to look again at the best location for the Town Centre one to ensure we get the best coverage possible from the available Defibs.
