Lifesaving defibrillators for Rushden


Rushden Town Council has told the Reporter that they have purchased six new defibrillators, which are currently being installed across the town.

The potentially life-saving defibrillators were partly funded by East Northamptonshire Council’s ‘Councillor Empowerment Fund,’ along with member contributions towards the installation costs, and a kind donation of £100 from the Independent Wesleyan Church, Rushden.

Defibrillators are medical devices that help and support a rescue for a patient in cardiac arrest, working to restore their heart rhythm before emergency services arrive and improving the patient’s survival rate.

“If a defibrillator is used within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, survival rates jump from six per cent to 74 per cent.” First Aid for Life
