We would like to thank the North Tawton Town Council for providing the school with a defibrillator.
A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart of someone who is in cardiac arrest.
It is located so that anyone in our community can access it, day or night.
Please come through the main gates – they are not locked.
Walk across the carpark or around the path if it is not safe to do so, towards the school main entrance.
The defibrillator is on the wall on the left, it can be accessed without entering the locked gate.
There is excellent training and information on both the British Heart Foundation and St Johns Ambulance
