Defibrillator

The Parish Council is pleased to announce the installation of a defibrillator for Bempton and Buckton. It is located on the outside wall of the Community Hall in a yellow metal safe, to the right of the main entrance. To gain access to the defibrillator you need to phone the 999 service and they will give you the code and guide you through operating the appliance.

The Parish Council has worked hard to obtain a grant for the defibrillator, casing and a familiarisation session. We are currently in the process of arranging the training session and when we have a date and time we will put it on our website.  Should you wish to attend please contact the clerk of the parish.
