Community Defibrillator Training

Community Defibrillator Training

A new date has been set for Elton’s Community Defibrillator Training.

The event will take place on Wednesday 25 April 2018, starting at 7pm in Elton Village Hall. Everybody welcome! 

The original event in February was cancelled due to heavy snow meaning the trainer could not travel.

The event will be hosted by the Community Heartbeat Trust who will demonstrate how the new device works and what you should do in the event that somebody suffers a cardiac arrest. The session is expected to last no more than 2 hours.

If you cannot make the event, please see our video tutorial by the Saint John’s Ambulance at

We hope to see you there!

It is with regret that the Community Defibrillator Training session that was due to be held this Wednesday – 28 February 2018 – has been CANCELLED.
This is due to the trainer travelling from Castle Donnington and with the recent weather forecast for heavy snow all week, he felt it best not to make the long journey in bad weather.
A new date for the training session will be arranged shortly and we will notify you of this date at the earliest opportunity. We want to make sure the session happens as soon as possible.
Not everybody in Elton visits this website or receives our e-news letters, so please help to spread the word by telling your friends, family and neighbours. Posters have been put around the village to try and let as many people know as we can.
Apologies again for the cancellation.

Defibrillator Community Training

Defibrillator Community Training

A defibrillator has been installed in Elton. The device is located in the telephone box on the village green, Main Street, Elton (DE4 2BW).

Below is an instructional video by the Saint John’s Ambulance on how to use a defibrillator.

In the event that you suspect somebody is having a heart attack, call 999 immediately. The Elton defibrillator has been registered with the East Midlands Ambulance Service and they will advice whether the device is needed, how to access it and how to use it. Do not try to access or use the defibrillator without the advice of the emergency services.

The device uses verbal and visual instructions on how to use it. The defibrillator will also detect whether or not the patient is having a cardiac arrest. The device will not activate if it is not needed. You cannot get it wrong or cause greater harm using a defibrillator.
