Community Defibrillators

As of January 2016 we have eight Community Defibrillators sited around the village:

  • Richmond House, Hawes Road. LA6 3AN
  • Primary School, Low Demesne, LA6 3DY
  • 2 New Village, LA6 3DG
  • Stacksteads Leisure Centre, Tatterthorn Lane, LA6 3HS

All of the Community defibrillators listed above are housed in unlocked yellow cabinets which can be accessed immediately by opening the door.

There is also a defibrillator situated outside the Community Centre. This was given to the village by Yorkshire Ambulance Service and, in accordance with their policy, it is in a locked cabinet. If you need this defibrillator the code to unlock it will be provided you when you dial 999.

The Save A Life team have worked closely with the Yorkshire Ambulance Service and they are aware of the location of all the Community Defibrillators. This means if you are not sure where the nearest defibrillator is they will be able to give advice.
