Defibrillators can be vital in saving the life of someone whose heart has stopped by giving them an electric shock. Each defibrillator gives spoken instructions on what to do and will not give a shock if it is not needed. So they are really easy to use.

- At the entrance to Woodhill Surgery
- Beside the steps to the entrance to Mayfield Primary School
- On the outside wall of the Five Ashes Inn
Look out for the signs which indicate a defibrillator ; a heart with a lightning bolt in the middle .
