Swanage Community Defibrillator Project

The Swanage Community Defibrillator Partnership (SCDP) has been established by a group of representatives from local organisations seeking to purchase and maintain strategically located Lifesaving equipment for the town and neighbouring villages.

Currently in the Swanage area we have 21 defibrillators that can be accessed 24 hours a day via 999 and the Ambulance Service. By calling 999 you get assistance on the way to access the cabinets and how to release and use the defibrillator.

Awareness workshops are being held to allow people to understand what you do in an emergency and how to use an AED. The partnership hopes to do some more workshops in September with the dates to be announced.
