The new defibrillator, funded by the Society, is now set up in the old telephone kiosk outside the shops in Dulwich Village. Also known as a defib or an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), it needs no training to use as the machine guides you with simple instructions and tells you out loud what to do. You can’t deliver a shock accidentally, the defibrillator will not shock the patient unless it is needed so it is not possible to hurt someone - they can only be used to save someone’s life. This short film by the London Ambulance Service shows you how to use it. Society volunteers check regularly to ensure it is charged and ready for action but we hope it will never be used.
In addition, a map and a list of defibrillators in Dulwich is available here. The map is not intended for use in an emergency but to locate defibrillators. Please always dial 999 for urgent medical assistance. the map is based on information we have gathered from the community so we cannot guarantee complete accuracy.
