The Windsor Community Defibrillator Partnership (WCDP) has been established by a small group of representatives from local organisations seeking to purchase and maintain strategically lifesaving equipment for the town.
Currently in the centre of Windsor we do not have any defibrillators that can be publicly accessed 24 hours a day. Several premises have equipment, but they are not accessible out of hours for a number of reasons, and none are in the town main thoroughfares.
There are two public access external defibrillators in the Eton area, one at Eton Town Council Offices the second at the Chemists at Eton Wick.
The initial aim of WCDP is to raise funds to install and maintain 10 public access defibrillators. A number of sites are being explored but the overarching objective is to have all areas covered. There will also be a community familiarisation programme in their use, though all defibrillators have built in instruction and are designed to require NO formal training.
Please join our campaign and sponsor a device or donate towards the scheme or for more information please contact Windsor Lions 0845 833 4749, or via Windsor Lions website or alternatively a member of the Windsor Community Defibrillator Partnership.
