Public Access Defribrillators

The Public Access Defribillators (PAD) are located outside Drigg Village Hall, at Saltcoats Caravan Park and at Holmrook Services Station.

In case of an emergency requiring a defribillator, the procedure is: Call 999, ask for an Ambulance, the NWAS operator will give you an access code which will allow you, or someone giving help, to open the cabinet andcollect the defribillator. Once the defribrillator is switched on it gives verbal instructions and will only activate if the casualty has cardiac arrest​.
