Defibrillator Mapping Exercise – We need your help!

Kidsgrove Town Council is working to put together a map of all the defibrillators within our area. We are not only interested in the ones that are currently public access, but also those that are privately sited.
 
The results of the mapping exercise, which is being run working in conjunction with the Rotary Club, the First Responders and the Locality Action Partnership groups, will be shared publicly and also used to co-ordinate use of the defibrillators with the emergency services.
 
We would be very grateful if details could be sent to us to include location, whether or not its accessible to the public and person/group/business responsible.If the defibrillator is in a cabinet, it would also be useful to now whether a code is needed or not.
 
Please send the information to Kidsgrove Town Council:
email townclerk@kidsgrovetowncouncil.gov.uk
We really appreciate your help.
