Unsure what to do?
If you come across someone who is unconscious, unresponsive, not breathing or not breathing normally, they could be in cardiac arrest. Call 999 immediately and start CPR straight away. When you call 999, the operator can tell you if there’s a public access defibrillator nearby and can provide the code required to access it. If it’s possible, send someone else to find a defibrillator.
You don’t have to be specifically trained to use a defibrillator, they are very easy to use and the machine will talk you through the procedure.

The defibrillators provided by Bridgend Town Council were part funded by donations from Graham Paul Accountants, Dewi Griffiths Jewellers, The Rhiw Shopping Centre, Bridgend Indoor Market, Watts and Morgan Estate Agents, the Town Hall Trust and CF31 BID. Watts and Morgan, HD Ltd and Blodau Florists assisted in siting the defibrillators.
A fourth defibrillator was installed at the top end of Wyndham Street on the side of the former Dunraven Hotel, however this was recently vandalised.
