Defibrillator Location at TPC

June 17, 2019

The Girls’ Brigade raised funds to have a defibrillator installed in the village with easy access, and the good news is it has now been installed at the Torrance Parish Church car park (next to the boiler room door.) In an emergency, you must dial 999 or 112 and the operator will give you the location and a code to gain access to the defibrillator. Well done to the Girls’ Brigade!
