A DEFIBRILLATOR has been installed at Bidford Fire Station.

It is one of three that the parish council intends to help fund around the village.

The device gives the patient an electric shock through the chest wall straight to the heart in the event of a cardiac arrest.

Elisabeth Uggerløse, Bidford parish clerk, said: “We’re delighted to have contributed to the safety of its residents by providing this defibrillator, one of three to be installed in the village.

“It is grateful to Bidford Fire Station for providing the venue for the subsequent training sessions.”

Cllr Howard Roberts, Warwickshire County Council’s portfolio holder for fire and community safety, added: “The greater the access to defibrillators, the safer our communities are, so more equipment of this type in Warwickshire is fantastic news.”
