Life saving defibrillator installed at Hall Park

Life saving defibrillator installed at Hall Park

We are pleased to announce that a new defibrillator has been installed at Hall Park and is located at the new accessible toilet, next door to Rushden Museum.

Defibrillators are medical devices that help and support a rescue for a patient in cardiac arrest, working to restore their heart rhythm before emergency services arrive and improving the patient's survival rate.

"If a defibrillator is used within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, survival rates jump from 6 per cent to 74 per cent." First Aid for Life

Last year, Rushden Town Council installed defibrillators at Spencer Park Pavilion, Jubilee Park Pavilion and also plan to install three more defibrillators in locations across the town.

The potentially life-saving defibrillators have been partly funded by East Northamptonshire Council's 'Councillor Empowerment Fund,' along with member contributions towards the installation costs, and a kind donation of £100 from the Independent Wesleyan Church, Rushden.
