Saving lives locally
A defibrillator can help to save the life of someone who is in cardiac arrest. Other names for defibrillators include a defib, an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) or a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD).
Mid Deeside Community Council maintains the life-saving defibrillators in Aboyne and Dinnet. The Kincardine O'Neil Community Association (KCA) maintains those in Kincardine O'Neil and Dess. Teams of volunteers regularly check the defibrillators to make sure that they are ready if needed in emergency. The defibrillators are registered on the National Defibrillator Network which is known as 'The Circuit'.
Help is needed with the checks, and also with the cost of replacing batteries, pads and keeping the defibrillator software up to date. If you can help by offering your time or by supporting us with maintenance costs, whether by a one-off donation or by regular sponsorship, please complete the feedback form at the bottom of this page (click here).
