DEFIBRILLATOR TRAINING

Training in how to use the defibrillator confidently will be held on Thursday 4th May 2017 at the Village Hall at 7.30 p.m.  Although clear instructions are given when the defibrillator box is opened, this training will help you feel more confident and could be crucial in saving a life.    You never know when you might have to use the equipment – it has been used on several occasions – so please come and find out how to use this valuable resource.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IN A MAJOR EMERGENCY?

It may never happen – BUT what if an aeroplane dropped from the sky, or we had very severe weather for a week with no electricity?  Well, we hope Tickenham will be prepared!  With the help of North Somerset Council, a ‘Community Resilience Plan’ has been put together with five teams to look after Flood, Feeding, Rest Centre & Welfare, Evacuation & Transport and Safety.  The teams will work with the Emergency Services to provide care and support for our residents.  Information about the Plan will be circulated to every house with the June Parish Magazine.  In the meantime, if you would like more information or to offer your assistance, please get in touch with Vena Prater on 01275 856289
