A volunteer guardian must be appointed for each defibrillator. The guardian is responsible for carrying out and submitting regular safety checks to your local ambulance service in order to show the defibrillator is functioning correctly and safe to use.
The Defibrillator Group will register your guardian and remind them to send their reports each month.
In the event the report is not sent, we will be notified by the ambulance service and work with you to ensure that the checks and reports are carried out.
For ease of use many of our cabinets are now fitted with NHS designed QR codes, which allows you to submit reports direct to the ambulance service via your mobile phone.
All defibrillators are fitted with batteries and pads that carry an expiry date. If they are not monitored the equipment can fail if used.
Your details will be logged onto our software and expiry dates monitored. When they need changing, you will be advised.
Sadly, there are rare occasions when defibrillators are stolen or vandalised.
The Defibrillator Group are one of the only organisations that guarantee to repair or replace your defibrillator or cabinet in the event of theft vandalism or damage to your equipment.
