Cookham Reach Sailing Club has launched a project to raise 2,000 to install a defibrillator on the tow path by the club.  The defibrillator will be there for the benefit of all river users, club members and the whole Cookham community 24/7.

An excellent idea.
I will definitely contribute.

Can they clarify ".... install a defibrillator on the tow path by the club ..."

Presumably the defibrillator will not be housed within the Club grounds, as then it might be awkward
to access it in the event of the Club being closed and there being an emergency!
In which case, what security measures would be incorporated should the unit be housed outside the Club grounds?

To access a public defibrillator you usually have to phone a number next to it to get the code to release it. I'm confused over the mention of training. The latest public defibs dont require training. They tell you in voice what to do and analyse automatically  and dont shock unless required.

Reply from the Sailing Club

1/ The defibrillator will be on the boundary of the club and accessible 24 hours a day to anybody who needs it.  Access will be by special code which will be given to the person dialling the emergency service.
 
2/ Regarding training the comment is correct no special training is required to use a defibrillator. The training I referred to is more like a familiarisation session for the club members who will be nominated to check the unit regularly and send in reports online every month to the provider.
