The defibrillator, that was missing from outside of Jarvis Brook Memorial Hall, has been returned anonymously this afternoon (Thursday 5th).
Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are sophisticated medical devices that can analyse the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock to re-establish an effective rhythm. The Crowborough Community First Responders (CCFR) has raised funds through public donations and installed defibrillators at various strategic locations around Crowborough.
Crowborough Community First Responders believe for several reasons this was an oversight by the person who had it, rather than taken maliciously. The charity wish to thank everyone who shared their posts and those of Sussex Police.
It is now back in the possession of the CCFR and will be returned to its cabinet this evening, ready for use if needed in an emergency.
