Sway's Defibrillators

A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest. For more detailed information refer to the British Heart Foundation website.

Sway is fortunate enough to have two publicly accessible Defibrillators sited within the village. There are a further two portable defibrillators in the equipment carried by the Lymington and Sway community First Responders who will often be first on the scene following a 999 emergency call.

Clearly in the event of a cardiac emergency, always call 999 immediately. After that it is vital to administer correct first aid quickly if at all possible.

Lymington and Sway community First Responders will often be on the scene quickly following the 999 call with a portable defibrillator, but in case of any delay, use of one of the Public Access Defibrillators could make all the difference. Knowing the location of the nearest defibrillator and how to gain access to it is therefore highly important.

If you are the person performing CPR, send someone else to collect the nearest accessible defibrillator.

Note that both defibrillators are accessible at all times day and night as they are mounted on the exterior of the buildings at both Jubilee Field Pavilion and the Village Hall.

Being on the outside wall of the pavilion, it can be easily accessed at any time day or night. It is in a locked case so to gain access you will need to phone the emergency services on 999 and ask the operator for the unlock code for defibrillator AE44. Then punch the code that you are given into the keypad and turn the handle to open the case and remove the defibrillator.

Other defibrillators are carried by the Lymington and Sway community First Responders. These specially trained volunteers respond to 999 calls with South Central Ambulance Service in Lymington, Sway, Boldre and surrounding parishes.
