Wolds Community First Responders
Accessing Your Local AED (Village Defibrillator)
In all our villages we have an emergency Defibrillators. They have been paid for by local village community donations and are regularly checked. Why don’t you familiarise yourself to where they are.
When a 999 emergency telephone call is made an EMAS (East Midlands Ambulance Service) Controller will ask some questions and they will assess if a Defibrillator is needed. They know where your nearest defibrillator is located.
If they want you or someone else with you to go for the defibrillator they will say so. They will tell you exactly where it is located and give you the access code for the yellow box.
EMAS Control will keep talking to you on the phone all the time.
When the defibrillator arrives you open it and it will speak to you and tell you exactly what to do. You don’t need any special training.
Stay calm and don’t panic.
If you know how to perform CPR then that is good but again EMAS will tell you what to do.
The Wolds CFR group have annual training sessions on CPR, Defibrillators and strokes but this year they have been curtailed. We do hope to offer these again when we can.
If you have any questions, assistance or need to learn more than phone Peter on 01509 889692
The team are on call for you.
If you are interested in finding out more then please do contact Peter.
We operate as a Charitable Trust with a management team made up from the CFR’s.
Have you thought about being a CFR? Why not give Peter a call to have a chat about the work?

Copies will be available to purchase from G.G. Granville’s in Wymeswold and Marcol garage in Burton on the Wolds from 15th. If you would like a copy posting to you then please email email@example.com – we can accept payment by cheque or PayPal.
As with the previous WHO publication, Discovering the Wolds, there are a variety of articles in roughly chronological order. However, in People and Places of the Wolds a great many of the contributions are about the people who were born or lived in this part of north Leicestershire.
Herein are the ‘great and the good’ and all types in between. They include a locally- famous schoolmaster-cum-antiquarian; two men who both collected plants and climbed mountains; a soldier involved in the Charge of the Light Brigade; a man transported to Australia; the ‘gentry’ who built Burton Hall; all the owners and occupiers of one of the manor farms; a Second World War airman who miraculously survived; a once-famous speedway rider; and a girl with a passion for riding horses.
