Defib Kingsdown
A third defibrillator has now been installed by the Parish Council, this time in Kingsdown.  It is located in Kingsdown Road, on a garden wall opposite Kingsdown House, in a secure cabinet.  You ring 999 for the code to unlock it.
A defib gives a high energy electric shock to the heart of someone in cardiac arrest and can be a life saver.  
We’re looking at organising another of our highly successful ‘Heart Start’ courses, run by Lynsted resident Simon White.  If you’d like to participate, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Parish Council installed another defib machine last year in the garden of the Black Lion, to add to the one outside Swaleside vets on the London Road.
