Defibrillator Project

As part of the Moorfoot Neighboorhood Plan, Moorfoot Community Council have now signed a contract and paid a nominal sum for the purchase of the BT kiosks in North Middleton and Carrington which can each then be used to house a defibrillator inside a heated cabinet.

As the BT kiosk in Temple has not yet been decommissioned and cannot be purchased, Temple Village Halls Association is planning to install a defibrillator on an exterior wall of the Village Hall.

BT have yet to complete the handover, so the timescale for moving the project forward in N Middleton and Carrington is for the moment dependent on BT.

Temple Village, however, can press ahead and Moorfoot Community Council will offer support as required.

Moorfoot Community Council, along with N Middleton and
Carrington Village Halls will undertake to:
  • Organise fund raising
  • Organise the refurbishment of the 2 BT kiosks
  • Evaluate and purchase the equipment
  • Organise installation by a qualified electrician
  • Organise training of local volunteers in CPR and the use of a defibrillator
  • Set up a system to monitor and test equipment
  • Be responsible for maintenance

Volunteers will be needed for

— Fund raising

— Training in CPR and the use of defibrillators

— Monitoring of equipment as well as local communication of access details

If you would like to know more or are interested in getting involved to support this project, long or short-term, please get in touch with the Secretary at Moorfoot Community Council: secretary@moorfoot.org.uk
