What is SHOCK Sleaford?

SHOCK Sleaford is a volunteer-run charity whose members fundraise to purchase, install and manage publicly accessible automated external defibrillators (known as AEDs or defibs).

If you or a loved one were unlucky enough to go into cardiac arrest, you need help as quickly as possible.  The sooner your heart gets a shock from a defibrillator, the more chance you stand of surviving a cardiac arrest – the rate of survival reduces by 10-14% with every minute passing.

Our aim is to give Sleaford and the surrounding villages as near to complete defibrillator coverage as possible.  This is defined as all populated areas (both residential and business) being within 500 metres of a unit.

Always call 999

Remember, if you think you need to use a defibrillator call 999 first – the operator will arrange assistance and give you the access code to retrieve the unit.

All our defibs are registered with The Circuit, a national database of defibrillators funded by the British Heart Foundation.  For details of where your local defib might be located, check out our Find a Defib page.

One of our suppliers London Hearts has kindly given permission for us to share their awareness video.  Please watch for everything you need to know on when and how to use an AED.
